PC-ISO


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.
