A.B.S. – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (A.B.S.) is a thermoplastic material that offers several benefits for custom projects. It is a lightweight and durable material that is easy to process and fabricate, making it a popular choice for applications that require low-cost and high-volume production.

Additionally, A.B.S. has excellent impact resistance and can withstand significant force without cracking or breaking, making it ideal for applications that require toughness and durability and is particularly good for deep draw vacuum forming for products likely to receive abuse in the form of knocks, scuffing and scratching.

Furthermore, A.B.S. has a smooth surface finish that is easy to paint, print, or label, providing customisation options for different applications. It can be easily moulded into complex shapes, making it a versatile material for custom projects. A.B.S. also has excellent chemical resistance.
