PC-ABS

Technology: Fused Filament Fabrication

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) - PC-ABS

Description

PC-ABS is a thermoplastic material that combines the toughness of polycarbonate (PC) with the flexibility of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). It is popular for various engineering applications thanks to its excellent mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. ABS-PC is frequently used in the automotive and aerospace industries for producing interior and exterior parts and in consumer products like electronics, appliances, and toys. Its easy moldability and processing make it a highly versatile engineering material that has gained popularity over the years.
