Clariant 15% Glass Fiber Reinforced PC+ABS (PC+ABS-GF15) is created by adding 15% glass fibers to a Polycarbonate + Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (PC+ABS) polymer blend to provide a strong and tough material with improved resistance to warpage during printing. Clariant additives are added via a Renol® masterbatch to improve the heat stability and resistance to thermo-oxidative degradation and yellowing. 
Benefits
  • Strong and tough engineering thermoplastic
  • High impact strength
  • High heat resistance
  • Good low temperature ductility
  • Glass reinforcement helps minimize warping during printing
  • Reduced thermo-oxidative degradation
  • Minimized undesired yellowing due to ultraviolet light

Applications*
  • Mechanical and technical application parts that require strength and toughness
  • Prototypes
  • Tools, jigs, fixtures
*Subject to detailed product specifications.

  • EYE AM WATCHED - Catch me if you can (orange)
  • Print Temperature = 260-285°C
  • Print Speed = 20-50 mm/s
  • Bed Adhesion = a thin coating of PVP glue on glass or carbon fiber
  • Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 110°C (use an enclosed chamber if possible)
  • Fan Settings = low

Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on Ultimaker S5 and 3ntr A4 V3 printers.
