ABS/PC is a thermoplastic resin commonly used for injection molding applications. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene polymer (ABS) blended with polycarbonate (PC) resin offers a favorable combination of mechanical and thermal properties. It exhibits high toughness even at cold temperatures, rigidity, dimensional stability, easy processing, good color stability in indoor lighting, and good heat resistance.
PC/ABS alloys process with the ease of ABS materials, yet have a toughness similar to polycarbonate materials.
The high heat distortion of the alloy is an improvement over ABS, while the low-temperature impact resistance gives it an advantage over polycarbonate.
- Easy processability
- Good impact strength and toughness - even at low temperatures
- Good dimensional stability
- Good rigidity, thermal stability and color stability
- Poor chemical resistance
- Poor weatherability
- -Low fatigue endurance
