PC (Policarbonato)



PC (Policarbonato)

Il PC è un termoplastico industriale largamente usato nel settore automobilistico, aerospaziale, medicale ed in molti altri ambiti applicativi. Il PC offre precisione, durata e stabilità, creando componenti che resistono senza problemi ai test funzionali. Il PC offre anche proprietà meccaniche superiori sia all’ABS che a diversi altri materiali termoplastici.
