Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene or ABS is a thermoplastic and amorphous polymer, which is a highly versatile form of plastic utilized in a variety of applications. It is one of the most commonly utilized plastics in the manufacture of OEM part and 3D prints. ABS plastic has a low melting point and a low glass transition temperature due to its chemical qualities, making it easy to melt down and mold into various shapes during the injection molding process. As ABS cools and solidifies it becomes reasonably safe to handle, making it one of the easiest plastics to manipulate.
Polycarbonate (PC) is an amorphous and transparent thermoplastic polymer that has strong temperature and flame resistance as well as electrically insulating qualities. It’s a high-quality resin, and one of the most durable plastic injection molding materials on the market. Polycarbonate is also extremely heat resistant and it can be mixed with flame retardant compounds without causing substantial material deterioration. PC is a popular engineering plastic because of its unusual properties which include: High impact resistance, high dimensional stability, good electrical properties amongst other.
PC-ABS is and engineering thermoplastic made up of a mixture of Polycarbonate and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). PC-ABS plastic is one of the most extensively utilized engineering thermoplastic in the world. Even at low temperatures, this material possesses exceptional strength, stiffness, heat resistance, and impact resistance. PC-ABS is easy to work with since it maintains its dimensional stability over time and has improved flow properties and processability.
Acetal plastic, commonly known as polyoxymethylene (POM) is a semi-crystalline synthetic thermoplastic with a wide range of applications. Acetal is frequently used for parts that require high stiffness, minimal surface friction, and dimensional stability. POM products are extremely adaptable, and as a result they’re employed in a wide range of sectors. Injection molding, extrusion, compression molding, rotational casting, and blow molding are all options for POM processing.
