All About Our Hard Plastic Cases
S3 Cases is committed to choosing the best materials for our cases. Our reputation lies with protecting your valuable equipment and one way we do that is by fashioning our plastic outer case out of the strongest plastic on the market. All of our opaque, colored cases are formed out of High Impact ABS and our clear cases are fashioned from Medical Grade Polycarbonate. These “engineered resins”, as they are known in the industry, are extremely strong and stand up to the toughest and most rigorous testing.
High-Impact ABS (Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, and Styrene for you chemists) is a hard, rigid, and tough material. It exhibits outstanding dimensional stability, good chemical and heat resistance, surface hardness, and is lightweight at the same time. ABS is used in camper tops, communication equipment, small appliances, and home security devices around the world.
Polycarbonate, the plastic used in our clear cases, is one of the toughest materials on the market. It is strong, tough, and transparent, making it a favorite in protecting valuable equipment while not hiding its’ contents. Used in riot shields, motorcycle windshields, safety helmets, and medical devices, it is highly resistant to chemicals and virtually indestructible. This means it is excellently suited for harsh environments, rough use, and more without sacrificing protection quality.
Whichever product you choose, you can feel comfortable knowing our products use the most durable and lightweight plastic available. Extensive tests have been done on our cases. In fact, cars have been driven over several of our smaller cases (both materials) with no adverse effect to the cases or the contents within. S3 Cases stands by the value of our cases and the durability of their hard plastic outer shell.
