Chemically hailed from terpolymers, it is the polymerization of Acrylonitrile, Styrene monomers and Butadiene. It combines the properties of all the three different monomers to form a single property. While it also blends with other materials such as polycarbonates, polysulfones, and polyvinyl chloride.
ABS holds an outstanding impact and mechanical strength which makes this a tougher product.
It is a low-cost plastic material containing outstanding impact resistance, thermoforming characteristics, and machinability. An excellent choice for machine housing, point-of-purchase display, and retail store fixtures.
The plastic can be used for general-purpose, fire-rated, machine grade, orthotic grad, FDA, UUV resistant, FDA compliant grade, and scratch resistance grades that differs in color, and textures.
0.060 in – 4 in
12 in x 12 in – 48 in x 96 in
0.250 in – 6 in
Note: Length, width, diameter, the thickness can vary by brand, manufacture, and grade.
Rigid ABS material – It is rigid combined with the properties that make it ideal for a wide range of applications. It is stiff, has strength, with good performing characteristics of high and low-temperature performance with great formability.
Fire-rated property – It is a fire-rate alloy ABS/PVC alloy material often used in architectural, electrical and transportation applications.
Excellent formability – The rigid product is manufactured to meet the aviation requirement, hence its lightweight, stiff, contains high tensile, and ductility.
Thermoforming characteristics – The presence of thermoforming characteristics makes the ABS sheet usable in fabric brace stiffening panels and back braces.
