PC-ABS

Strong Engineering Thermoplastic

PC-ABS (polycarbonate-ABS) is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics. PC-ABS offers the most desirable properties of both materials – the superior strength and heat resistance of PC and the flexibility of ABS. PC-ABS blends are commonly used in automotive, electronics and telecommunications applications.

For functional prototyping, tooling and low-volume manufacturing that requires superior impact strength, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology works with PC-ABS thermoplastic.
