Proto-Pasta has created another gem with their Polycarbonate ABS Alloy. This filament is really tough, and can stand up to the wear and tear for any strong or irrepressible parts that you may need printed. It is superior to standard ABS in many ways, including heat deflection, impact resistance, rigidity, and flexibility.
PC-ABS is very moisture sensitive. Even when stored in a bag with desiccant, drying in an oven for about an 1hr at 85 °C-95 °C may be required for bubble-free, high strength prints.
In our experience, good results were achieved when printing small parts at 260 °C-280 °C using a .5mm nozzle and direct-drive spring loaded pinch-roll style extrusion head.
