ABS + PC (ABS + Polycarbonate Alloy)

PC + ABS plastics offer improved strengths over ABS at a lower cost than Polycarbonate. Exceptional low temperature Impact Strength. The material can be modified by the addition of glass fiber, mineral fillers and flame retardant.

Applications: Automotive exterior and interior components, medical hardware, electrical housings, computers, monitors, business equipment housings and enclosures

Advantage

 

Good impact resistance with toughness and rigidity
Metal coatings have excellent adhesion to ABS
Very good indoor UV light colour stability
Excellent processability and appearance

Disadvantage

 

Poor solvent resistance Low dielectric strength (not a good insulator)

Low continuous service temp. (melts easily)
