PC-Max™, produced by Polymaker, is a polycarbonate based filament and has excellent mechanical strength, heat resistance, and a beautiful shine. Polycarbonate (known also by the trade names Makrolon® and Lexan™) has been a ubiquitous manufacturing material since the 1950’s and is used today across hundreds of industries in everything from computers, to safety glasses, to stadium roofs! With PC-Max™, you’ll be able to print with one of the most powerful materials in manufacturing on a machine that is built to help you manufacture and prototype any item you can think of. And it can be post-processed for additional cosmetic appeal.
