PC Blend is perfect for stronger, more durable 3D prints. It is an excellent choice for printing mechanically stressed parts. Compared to other materials, PC Blend has high-temperature resistance.
Because of the strong, tough and rigid material properties, mechanical stressed parts are the most typical usage of PC Blend.
Thanks to the high-temperature resistance up to 113 °C, PC Blend is a great choice for heat-stressed parts like fan-shroud on a 3D printer.
Besides the well-known PLA, PETG and ASA, we now also offer advanced material PC Blend (PolyCarbonate). This material is perfect for stronger, more durable 3D prints. If you are new to 3D printing, you should definitely stick to PLA. PC Blend is recommended for experienced 3D printer owners looking for tough, durable material for production of prototypes and functional parts, thermally and mechanically stressed components.

Prusament PC Blend can be printed on both smooth and textured print sheets. However, it’s required to spread a separating agent on the sheet before you start printing, otherwise the adhesion of the print may be too strong. The easiest way to prepare your print sheet is to apply a thin layer of paper glue onto the sheet. This is why we bundle a paper glue stick (KORES) to every PC Blend spool for free. Failing to add a separating layer may lead to the damage to your print sheet! While our documentation states that it’s not necessary to apply glue onto the powder-coated textured print sheet, the PC Blend is an exception. Do not use the glue when printing with other materials (PLA, PETG, ASA, Flex and others)!
