ABS

ABS, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is a member of the styrene family of polymers. It shares many properties with polystyrene, the main
difference being that it is considerably tougher and more resistant to impact, even at temperatures of up to – 40ºC (for special-grade ABS).

Key features of ABS

Impact Resistant

Even at low temperatures, Ideal working temperature range: 18°C to 25°C

Strong Hard & Rigid

Rigidity improves as thickness increases.

Scratch & Cracking Resistant

Reasonably scratch-resistant & Resistant to environmental stress cracking influences

UV Resistant

Can be made more UV resistant to reduce likelihood of yellowing

Highly Shock Absorbent

Because of the butadiene rubber.

Easy To Vacuum Form & Process

Easy To Vacuum Form & Process. Continuous working temperature range: -30ºC to 90ºC

Can Be Printed or Bonded

Inked or electroplated and can also be glued.

Is ABS or PLA better for 3d printing?

PLAABS, and nylon are three of the most popular 3D printing materials. PLA is stronger and stiffer than ABS, but poor heat-resistance properties means PLA is mostly a hobbyist material. ABS is weaker and less rigid, but also tougher and lighter, making it a better plastic for prototyping applications.

Applications of ABS

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, often abbreviated as ABS, is an opaque engineering thermoplastic widely used in electronic housings, auto parts, consumer products, pipe fittings, lego toys and many more.
