ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is an amorphous thermoplastic material, with a continuous use temperature range of -4° F (-20° C) to 176° F (80° C). It is categorized as a standard material, and offers a balanced combination of mechanical toughness, impact resistance, and ease of fabrication and thermoforming.
Benefits of ABS
Outstanding Impact Strength
High Melt Strength for Easy Thermoforming
Excellent for Deep Draw Thermoforming
Very Good Chemical Resistance
