Norm NF EN 45545-2 was created In order to secure the transport of railway passengers and limit fire related risks during an incident. This is done by imposing certain criteras regarding the non-flamability of material as well as the non-release of smoke and toxic fumes.

Easier to print than a native polycarbonate, Nanovia PC-ABS Rail is based on such a material and can be used to create secure componants for enclosed spaces.

Examples: arm rests, hooks, storage racks, hinges, electrical enclosures etc…


  • Made using 45545-2:2013+A1:2015 certified material
  • Very good fire resistance

Application recommendations


  • Store Nanovia PC-ABS Rail in a dry and dark location, if possible with a desiccant.
  • In order to guarantee good printing conditions dehydrate Nanovia PC-ABS Rail at 60 °C for 4 hours or longer, when the spools has been exposed to moisture for an extended period.


  • Extrusion temperature : 270 – 290 °C
  • Plate temperature : 120 °C
  • Enclosure temperature : 90 °C

Post treatment

  • For an outdoor usage, it’s recommended either paint or apply a protective UV coating, both polycabonate and ABS are sensitive to UV radiation, and might “yellow” or crack otherwise in the long term.

Health and safety


  • We recommend printing Nanovia PC-ABS Rail in a room equipped with air extraction or by using appropriate breathing equipment.

Post treatment

  • We recommend wearing standard safety equipment during the post treatment of your prints made with Nanovia PC-ABS Rail.


  • Certification RoHS Nanovia PC-ABS Rail : nanovia PC-ABS Rail certifié RoHS


Spools are packed in individual boxes, vacuum sealed with desiccant. Spools are equipped with both a material traciblity and a production series number.
