PolyCast™, is a variant of the polysmooth resin (PVB) manufactured by Polymaker. It is a filament designed to produce investment patterns for investment (lost wax) casting applications. It prints as easy as PLA, burns out clean (0.003% ash residue), can be smoothed and/or dissolved with isopropyl alcohol, and cuts and sands like ABS. 3D printed patterns with PolyCast enables more complex geometric shapes than is possible with molded wax by injection molding.
PolyCast absorbs moisture. Store this filament in a dry location (relative humidy under 20%). If print quality deteriorates, the material will need to be dried. We recommend using a dehydrator for drying your filament.

Filament Diameter: 2.85 mm (0.11 inches)
Amount of Filament: 750g (1.65 lbs)
Filament Colors: Natural off-white
Hot End Temperature Range: 190-220°C
Print Surface: Applying a glue stick (such as Elmer's® brand) directly to the print surface before starting your 3D printer is strongly recommended for increased printed object adhesion.
