PC-ISO for Fortus 3D Production Systems

PC-ISO (polycarbonate-ISO), an industrial thermoplastic, which in its raw state, is biocompatible (ISO 10993 USP Class VI)* and can be gamma or EtO sterilized. PC-ISO is commonly used in food and drug packaging and medical device manufacturing because of the material’s strength and medical compatibility. When combined with a Fortus® 3D Production system, PC-ISO gives you Real Parts™ that can be used for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, and end-use parts.

The information presented are typical values intended for reference and comparison purposes only. They should not be used for design specifications or quality control purposes. End-use material performance can be impacted (+/-) by, but not limited to, part design, end-use conditions, test conditions, color etc. Actual values will vary with build conditions. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Build orientation is on side long edge.
2 Literature value unless otherwise noted.
3 Due to amorphous nature, material does not display a melting point.
4 All Electrical Property values were generated from the average of test plaques built with default part density (sparse). Test plaques were 4.0 x 4.0 x 0.1 inches (102 x 102 x 2.5 mm) and were built both in the flat and vertical orientation.
