abs plastic

ABS Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene 

ABS PLATE ABS is easily machined and may be
bored, turned, drilled, milled, sawed,
die-cut, routed and sheared using
high-speed carbide-tipped tools.
ABS plate can also be filed, sanded,
ground, buffed and polished.
PROPERTIES High rigidity and impact strength.
Excellent abrasion resistance.
Excellent electrical properties,
moisture, and creep resistance.
ABS resists inorganic salts,
alkalies and many acids.
APPLICATIONS Machine parts and rollers.
ABS SHEET ABS combines toughness and rigidity
with chemical, stress-cracking,
and creep resistance.
Extruded ABS sheet can be easily
thermoformed with excellent mold detail
with most conventional equipment.
COMMON APPLICATIONS: Automotive interior and exterior trim.
Lab equipment, luggage, office accessories.
