ABS Polycarbonate is a versatile, durable plastic that offers many benefits over traditional plastics. This solid, opaque, and low-gloss sheet is more rigid than normal polycarbonate, making it ideal for applications where strength and stiffness are required. PC-ABS plastic, also known as LEXAN H6500, is flame-retardant and has excellent resistance to both impact and abrasion. It can also be thermoformed at lower temperatures making it easier to work with. It’s widely used in the bus and rail industries where durability, strength, and aesthetics are essential.
Superior Properties of ABS Polycarbonate
ABS Polycarbonate blend is available in various colors including clear, translucent, and opaque options. It can be custom-colored to match your company’s branding or any other shade you need. The color is molded-in, eliminating the need for painting, which saves both time and money. PC-ABS plastic is also available in a wide range of thicknesses and sheet sizes to meet your specific application needs.
Whether you want a high-quality material that delivers superior performance or an economical option for your bus or rail plastic fabrication projects, ABS Polycarbonate is the right choice. Here are its advantages over other materials:
- It is lightweight yet strong, making it ideal for a wide range of applications
- It is easy to fabricate and can be molded into complex shapes
