PC/ABS (Polycarbonate/Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is generally stronger than pure ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) in terms of impact resistance and heat resistance. This is because PC/ABS combines the properties of both materials:

1.  Impact Resistance: PC/ABS typically has better impact resistance than ABS alone. It can withstand higher impact loads without breaking or cracking easily.

2.  Heat Resistance: PC/ABS also offers improved heat resistance compared to ABS. It can withstand higher temperatures before deforming.

3.  Mechanical Properties: The addition of polycarbonate to ABS improves its overall mechanical strength, making it more durable and suitable for applications requiring toughness.

4.  Surface Appearance: PC/ABS can have a smoother surface finish compared to ABS, which may be beneficial for aesthetic applications.

Overall, PC/ABS is preferred in applications where both impact resistance and heat resistance are critical, such as automotive parts, electronics housings, and consumer goods. However, the choice between PC/ABS and ABS depends on specific application requirements and cost considerations.

The company specializes in the production of high-quality thermoplastic materials, including ABS, PC, PA6,PA66, PMMA, PP etc
