Power adapters have been widely used in people's lives, but a large number of power adapters of different qualities are also flowing into the market, but I don't know how much you know about the material of the power adapter shell? Next, alrightpower will introduce the material differences of the power adapter shell. If you know more about this kind of related information, you can also avoid some hidden dangers to a large extent!
The power adapter shell is generally made of plastic material, of course, some industrial power supplies use metal shells. The materials of our common power adapter shell mainly include ABS, ABS+PC, PC. In general, we only use these three materials. Let's introduce the differences between these materials one by one.
PC has ultra-high strength and elastic coefficient, and can be used in a wide range of temperature (ABS general material can only be used at -25 degrees to 60 degrees), in addition, PC material has high transparency and free dyeing, so it is very good to make various colors for Chinese power adapter. In addition, this material also has fatigue resistance, weather resistance, tasteless and odorless, and is harmless to human body. It is in line with health and safety.
ABS material features, first of all, it haslow strength and is not temperature resistant. In general, the maximum operating temperature cannot exceed 60 ℃, which is much worse than PC materials. ABS is generally used in household appliances.
Taking the characteristics of the former two, it has excellent molding performance, good fluidity and high strength. ABS+PC material is easy to process, has good processing dimensional stability and surface gloss, easy to paint, color, and can also perform secondary processing properties such as metal spraying, electroplating, welding and bonding.
Because the characteristics of ABS combine the characteristics of its three components, it has excellent comprehensive performance, and it has become one of the preferred plastics for electrical components, home appliances, computers and instruments.
In the selection of power adapter shell materials, pure PC materials and PC+ABS are basically the main materials. Although the cost will rise compared to the past, the price of the power adapter will also be different, however, in terms of environmental protection and safety, ABS does not match the current market demand.
