Polycarbonate acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (PC-ABS) is versatile. Providing a solid, opaque, and low-gloss sheet that’s more rigid than normal polycarbonate, PC-ABS is ideal for applications where strength and stiffness are must-have requirements.

PC-ABS plastic is also known as LEXAN H6500. This titan of plastics is additionally flame-retardant and has excellent resistance to both impact and abrasion. It also provides excellent thermoformability. You’ll often see ABS polycarbonate widely used for applications in bus and rail industries. That’s because PC-ABS is durable and strong.

The Superior Properties of ABS Polycarbonate Plastic Sheets

Picture the interior of a bus or rail car. Besides the vibrant and comfortable seats, buses and rails also typically feature PC-ABS. That’s because it’s durable. But that’s only where its benefits begin. ABS polycarbonate is also economical while offering superior performance.

Picture a stunning variety of plastic sheets, including clear, translucent, and opaque options. That’s what PC-ABS offers. It’s also an ideal custom-colored plastic. It can match your company’s branding or any other shade you need. PC-ABS also saves your business time and money—a molded-in coloring process eliminates the need for painting.

The color options offered by ABS polycarbonate make it similar to the chameleon of plastics, phenolic plastic. PC-ABS is extremely customizable. If you need a specific color, you’ll likely find it available with ABS polycarbonate. Polycarbonate plastic sheets are also available in a wide range of thicknesses and sheet sizes to meet your specific application needs.

Here are its advantages over other materials:

  • Lightweight yet strong
  • Easy to fabricate into complex shapes
  • Offers superior resistance to UV degradation
  • Excellent dimensional stability and resists warping and distortion
  • Good impact resistance at a wide range of temperatures, especially in cold conditions
  • Resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and oils
  • Superior electrical insulation properties
  • An economical choice for a wide range of applications
  • Retains its durability over wide temperature ranges
