PolyCast by Polymaker
PolyCast™ is a variant of the polysmooth resin (PVB) manufactured by Polymaker. It is a filament designed to produce investment patterns for investment (lost wax) casting applications. It prints as easy as PLA, burns out clean (0.003% ash residue), can be smoothed and/or dissolved with isopropyl alcohol, and cuts and sands like ABS. 3D printed patterns with PolyCast enables more complex geometric shapes than is possible with molded wax by injection molding.Product Alert (2)

- Hygroscopic Material
PolyCast absorbs moisture. Store this filament in a dry location (relative humidy under 20%). If print quality deteriorates, the material will need to be dried. We recommend this dehydrator for drying your filament.
- Parts & Specifications
Filament Diameter: 2.85 mm (0.11 inches)
Amount of Filament: 750 g (1.65 lbs)
Hot End Temperature Range: 190-220°C

Print Surface: Applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the PEI print surface before starting your LulzBot 3D printer is strongly recommended for increased printed object adhesion.
PolyCast filament ships vacuum sealed and mounted on a reel.
Store your filament in an air tight container. The filament arrives in a resealable bag recommended for storage. The use of desiccant is encouraged as PolyCast filament will absorb moisture from the air.
