3D Printing Technology
Polycarbonate (PC) is a high-performance 3D printing material known for its exceptional strength, toughness, and temperature resistance. PC has excellent mechanical properties, making it an ideal choice for parts that require durability and impact resistance. Its high heat deflection temperature makes it suitable for applications in automotive, aerospace, and engineering industries. In addition to its mechanical benefits, PC also offers good optical clarity, making it an attractive option for transparent or translucent parts. However, it is essential to note that PC typically requires a heated build chamber and higher print temperatures, making it more challenging to work with than some other materials.
