ABS is an amorphous thermoplastic material that offers mechanical toughness, impact resistance, and ease of fabrication and thermoforming.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, also known as ABS, among the industry’s most flexible materials, is easily fabricated and may be painted, glued and sanded. It’s far most generally used for mechanical functions but also has electrical houses that stay fairly steady within the suitable working variety of temperatures, regardless of the working surroundings’ ambient temperature or humidity degrees. The mild weight of ABS sheet makes it beneficial in manufacturing merchandise which includes drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipe structures, musical instruments.
It is able to additionally be recycled, which enables you to reduce the price of disposal. In filament shape, ABS is one of the maximum broadly used materials in Additive production, also called 3-d Printing. in case you’re seeking out a fabric that offers you excellent stability of price and performance within an inexpensive temperature variety, ABS will regularly be an excellent preference. Polymershapes stocks ABS in sheet and rod form, in black, white and natural hues, in a wide variety of sizes.

ABS can be easily fabricated, painted, glued and sanded. Making it a smart choice for mechanical purposes.

Light Weight

The lightweight ABS sheets allow it to be manufactured into musical instruments, automotive trim and medical devices for blood access.

Balanced Properties

ABS offers a good cost vs performance due to its impact strength properties, flame retardant and weather-resistant grade abilities.
