What is The Difference Between PC and ABS Materials for Suitcases?

Whether it is city roaming or small town tracing, luggage is a must-have item to accompany us when we go out. High-value, high-quality luggage makes the journey more pleasant and comfortable, so the material of the luggage is PC or ABS. Woolen cloth?
Many people choose luggage, focusing more on appearance, but considering practicality, they need to choose durable materials. The traditional old-fashioned luggage includes Oxford cloth soft case, leather case, aluminum-magnesium alloy hard case, and now more luggages are made of PC and ABS materials.
(1) PC material: PC material is the abbreviation of polycarbonate, which has excellent electrical insulation, extensibility, dimensional stability and chemical resistance, high strength, and is commonly used in the field of industrial technology and compressive performance. PC material is non-toxic and tasteless, which is an environmentally friendly material and can be colored. The PC material has good texture, strong rigidity, smooth and beautiful appearance, and also has the characteristics of impact resistance, waterproof and fashion.
Luggage made of PC material is lighter, lighter and tougher. When traveling for a long time and carrying a lot of luggage, the case will be lighter than luggage made of other materials. However, the impact resistance of the PC material suitcase is not as good as that of the ABS material, it is easy to crack, the fatigue strength is low, and the price is higher than that of the ABS material.

(2) ABS material: ABS material is composed of terpolymers of three monomers, namely acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. The contents of the three monomers are changed to make various resins. Acrylonitrile has the effect of heat resistance and corrosion resistance, butadiene has high elasticity and flexibility, and styrene has good thermoplasticity.
The suitcase is made of ABS material, which has good impact resistance, flexibility and rigidity, and is not easily deformed by gravity. It can well protect the box body and protect the items in the box from being damaged, and the price of the abs trolley case will be higher than that of the price. The price of PC trolley case is low.
However, the texture and rigidity of the ABS trolley case are not as good as the PC case, the case is easy to scratch, and the ABS is heavier than the PC case, and it is not as light as the PC case.
