BASF Ultrafuse PC/ABS FR

In stock (2 items available)

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.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Fulfills flame retardancy according to UL 94 V-0 (for 1.5 & 3.0 mm thickness)
  • Outstanding aesthetics
  • Strong layer adhesion
  • High print speeds possible
  • $44.99
