ABS, or acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, is a common thermoplastic that is easy to machine to close tolerances, easy to thermoform, and relatively low cost. The ease of machining and overall performance of ABS have made it one of the most popular materials for such wide-ranging applications as equipment housings, model making, storage bins and trays, and interior trim for vehicles and aircraft.

ABS Properties

ABS is one of the few non-metallic materials that can be electroplated. It exhibits good chemical and stress cracking resistance, and is resistant to alkalis, certain oils, mineral acids, and inorganic salt solutions.

ABS sheet and rod are ideal for applications requiring turning, drilling, milling, sawing, die-cutting, or shearing. These materials offer excellent abrasion, moisture, and creep resistance, and good dielectric properties. ABS rod and sheet are easily thermoformed and yield great heat detail.

ABS Features

  • High impact resistance
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Good electrical properties
  • Moisture resistant
  • Creep resistant
  • Easy to machine
  • Easy to heat form
