Ultrafuse® PC/ABS FR

A V-0 flame retardant blend of Polycarbonate and ABS, two of the most used thermoplastics for engineering & electrical applications.

Buy the material


Ultrafuse® PC/ABS FR Black is a V-0 flame retardant blend of Polycarbonate and ABS – 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 Black feature great tensile and impact strength, higher thermal resistance than ABS and can fulfill the requirements of the UL94 V-0 standard.
