- Compatibility Alert:
A tool head equipped with an all-metal hot end is required due to the high ideal printing temperature range.
- Print Surface Recommendation:
PolyMax™ PC is a polycarbonate-based material, therefore applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the print surface before starting your LulzBot 3D printer is strongly recommended for increased printed object adhesion.
This material features high-impact resistance and is formulated to minimize warping, making PolyMax™ PC perfect for demanding industrial applications like custom cases, fixtures, clasps, and anchors. PolyMax™ PC is designed to perform in hot, demanding environments.
