PC-ABS is a thermoplastic blend that combines the properties of polycarbonate (PC) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). It is commonly used as a filament for FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printing.
PC-ABS offers a combination of desirable characteristics from both polycarbonate and ABS plastics. By blending these two materials, PC-ABS exhibits excellent strength, high toughness, heat resistance, and good flexural strength.
PC-ABS is an ideal choice when you require the strength of polycarbonate and the impact resistance of ABS. It is suitable for a range of applications, including prototyping, tooling, and low-volume production.
|Tensile strength||45 - 70 MPa|
|Tensile modulus||1700 - 2400 MPa|
|Tensile elongation||5 - 20%|
|Flexural strength||60 - 85 MPa|
|Flexural modulus||1700 - 2300 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||90 - 110°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||80 - 100°C|
The provided technical properties represent the typical range for PC-ABS. However, it's important to note that these properties can vary depending on the specific formulation and manufacturer.
