Thought3D Magigoo Pro PC - 250ml
Magigoo PC is designed to work exclusively with polycarbonate filaments. This adhesive for professional use makes sure prints stick firmly when the print-bed is hot and that the part is easy to remove once it cools. This unique and innovative mechanism means that no tools are needed to remove prints from the bed. They just pop off when the bed cools down.

WHY CHOSE MAGIGOO PRO PC?
The strength and toughness of PC make it an ideal FDM material for the production of functional prototypes as well as end use parts, nonetheless, the material does present some printing challenges.
Virgin PC has a high glass transition temperature (Tg) and thus can be used in high-temperature applications. However, having a high Tg can make it very difficult to print using desktop printers, as these are usually not equipped to cater for the high printing temperatures required to print virgin PC. Virgin PC in fact tends to warp considerably when printed at an insufficient bed temperature (<130 ºC), in non-heated enclosed chambers without the use of an appropriate bed adhesive.
Certain manufacturers have improved the printability of PC by the use of plasticizers or blending with other materials. Nonetheless, when using these solutions some difficulties are still encountered, firstly with adhesion, especially on larger parts still can be an issue. In addition to this, some bed adhesion sheets have been proposed to avoid the warp encountered in larger prints, but in this case, there is a high tendency that the adhesion sheet being used fuses irreversibly to the print. This means that the expensive sheet needs to be removed very often and also incurs a lot of post-processing and cleaning.
Magigoo PC can be used on glass or multiple other surfaces. Use on other plastic-based surfaces, including sheets is recommended to provide strong adhesion and prevent the part to fuse to the sheet.
HOW DOES MAGIGOO WORK?
Magigoo PC works with Polcarbonate type filament. The adhesive makes sure prints stick firmly when the print-bed is hot and then releases as soon as it cools down. This unique and innovative mechanism means that no tools are needed to remove prints from the bed. They just pop off when the bed cools down.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MAGIGOO?
Magigoo is best stored upright, with the cap closed and away from direct sunlight. Magigoo was specifically designed for mobility, which is good news if you want to take it with you on the go.
WHAT ARE THE RECOMMENDED PRINT SETTINGS FOR MAGIGOO PRO PC?
Magigoo PC has been designed and tested to work with different PC filament brands.. As the composition of each plastic is a little different, the ideal settings for Magigoo PC may vary. Here are the recommended temperature ranges for effective application.
Settings and Recommendations:
- Bed and nozzle temperature: follow filament manufacturer recommendation
- Brim: a 20 mm multiple-layer brim might be needed for larger prints or when warping occurs.
