Prusament PC Blend is our own in-house made filament. The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested - we guarantee ±0.03mm precision and highly-consistent colors. You can inspect the parameters of every spool we made at prusament.com. Check the sample spool!
Glue for printbed included with every Prusament PC Blend.

We were not satisfied with the quality of filaments on the market. So we decided to make our own! Prusa Research is the only 3D printer manufacturer with its own filament production.
The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested – string diameter, color consistency, and mechanical properties – to make sure that every spool is perfect.
We believe the industry standard of 0.05 mm isn’t sufficient for perfect 3D printing. Instead, we guarantee ±0.03mm precision and highly-consistent colors in our filaments.
We are the only manufacturer that gives customers the option to fully inspect parameters of every filament spool. Just scan a QR code on the spool to see all details online (check the sample spool).
Prusament PC Blend (PolyCarbonate) is the perfect material for stronger, more durable 3D prints.
Polycarbonates are a group of plastics that are known for their strength, mechanical durability, toughness, and temperature resistance. They are commonly used for the production of CDs, protective goggles, or car headlights.
The composition of pure polycarbonate is a material not suitable for 3D printing. It adheres very poorly to the print sheet, and due to its high thermal expansion, it has a tendency to deform and crack. We have added carefully-picked additives into the mix, improving the adhesion and reducing cracking and warping, while still maintaining the excellent properties of polycarbonate.
Prusament PC Blend is suitable for advanced users. If you are new to 3D printing, we recommend you to stick with easier to print materials such as PLA and PETG. PC Blend is recommended for experienced 3D printer owners looking for tough, durable material for production of prototypes and functional parts, thermally and mechanically stressed components.
Prusament PC Blend can be printed on both smooth and textured print sheets. However, it’s required to spread a separating agent on the sheet before you start printing, otherwise the adhesion of the print may be too strong. The best way to prepare your print sheet is to apply a thin layer of paper glue onto the sheet. This is why we bundle a paper glue stick (KORES) to every PC Blend spool for free. Failing to add a separating layer may lead to the damage to your print sheet! While our documentation states that it’s not advised to apply glue onto the powder-coated textured steel sheet, the PC Blend is an exception. Do not use the glue onto the powder-coated textured steel sheet when printing with other materials (PLA, PETG, ASA, Flex, and others)!
After you finish printing and remove the object from the print sheet, use isopropyl alcohol to clean the print sheet thoroughly! Avoid cleaning the textured sheet with water - it may lead to corrosion.

Large models have a tendency to warp
High temperature resistance up to 113°C
Requires high heatbed and nozzle temperatures
Good dimensional stability in comparison with other PC filaments
High impact and wear resistance
Produces minor odors during printing
Prints don't deform under pressure over time
Low warping, layer cracks are very rare
Very low moisture absorption
This PC Blend is made in-house by Prusa Research.
1.75 mm filament is manufactured with a precision of ±0.03 mm.
Note that some tiny black particles may be visible in the filament material. These are a side effect of a normal manufacturing process, they exist already in the pellets from which the filament is made. It's only a visual imperfection, they have no negative impact on printability or mechanical qualities.
