PC + PTFE filament (polycarbonate + polytetrafluoroethylene) is a technical material, for professionals. It is characterized by its high mechanical and thermal resistance.
The material is ideal for making parts with good dimensional stability that have to work at high temperatures. Elements printed from this filament can work in temperatures around 120°C. Due to low static and dynamic friction coefficients, it can be used in the production of sliding elements. Printouts made of PC + PTFE can be machined to obtain a perfectly smooth surface.
If you are looking for detailed technical data on the PC + PTFE filament, see the technical sheet (downloads).
