Easy to print flame retardant filament
Ultrafuse® PC/ABS FR is a V-0 flame retardant blend of Polycarbonate and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, two of the most used thermoplastics for engineering & electrical applications. The combination of these two materials results in a premium material with a mix of the excellent mechanical properties of PC and the comparably low printing temperature of ABS. Combined with a halogen free flame retardant, parts printed with Ultrafuse® PC/ABS FR feature great tensile and impact strength, higher thermal resistance than ABS and can fulfill the requirements of the UL94 V-0 standard.
