POLYCARBONATE/ACRYLIC ALLOY (PC/PMMA)

Advantages

  1. High impact strength
  2. Excellent flow
  3. Lower processing temperatures than PC or PC/ABS

Limitations

  1. Opaque only
  2. Hygroscopic

Overview

Acrylic/polycarbonate alloys provide the high impacts of the polycarbonate component while processing with the ease of the acrylic component. It is ideal for thin and thick walled application requiring good toughness.

It is available in reinforced, flame retardant, conductive, and EMI/RFI shielding grades. It is hygroscopic and requires pre drying, but much less than that of straight polycarbonate.
