ABS and PC are compounded for bringing up the pros of both materials (although it is a common joke that PC/ABS combines the worst properties of the two materials).

Why choose?

  • Better resistance against elevated temperature than ABS and better cold resistance than PC.
  • Strangely enough, this combination of two materials with poor UV resistance can endure UV rays slightly better.

Why not choose:

  • Poor chemical resistance
  • Prone to stress corrosion cracking

Typical applications:

  • TV remote controller’s case
  • Cell phone case
  • Laptops
