ABS Plastics - Sheets, Rods, Tubes and Accessories


ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic is a tough, rigid thermoplastic material with high impact strength. It is easily machined and ideal for turning, drilling, milling, sawing, die-cutting and shearing.

ABS is also known by brand names including Polystone ABS, Formaterm, Sustaplast, SustaABS, Tecaran, King KPC ABS, PolyOne ABS, AquaPro A-20, Millenium V, Royalex, Royalite, Sparalloy, and WeatherPro.

ABS Overview

ABS is a tough, rigid thermoplastic material with high impact strength. It is easily machined and ideal for turning, drilling, milling, sawing, die-cutting and shearing.

ABS plastics provide a balanced combination of mechanical toughness, wide temperature range, good dimensional stability, chemical resistance, electrical insulating properties, and ease of fabrication.

ABS plastics are easily machined and in thinner gauges, easily die cut. ABS can be cut with standard hand held power tools, and line bent with our standard heat strips. ABS can be adhered to itself and other like plastics using weld-on adhesives.


• Easily machinable and fabricated

• Tough and rigid

• Wide operating temperature range

• High impact strength, even at low temperatures 

• Low heat conductivity 

• Corrosion and abrasion resistant 

• Low coefficient of friction

• High chemical resistance

• Good electrical insulation properties

• Good dimensional stability



ABS Applications

ABS sheet is generally used in thermoforming applications where good formability, and a cosmetic appearance are desired. Its impact resistance, and haircell-textured surface also make it a good choice for applications where a structural cosmetic faceplate is desired.

It is often used as panel inserts, and in audio/visual component applications due to its inherent scratch resistant surface.

Household and consumer goods are the major consumers of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS Plastic).

Applications include:

• Rain-waste-vent (DWV) pipe systems

• Covers, storage bins, food trays, instrument and equipment cases 

• Automotive trim components, automotive bumper bars

• Protective headgear

• Medical devices for blood access

• Enclosures for electrical and electronic assemblies

• Whitewater canoes, kitchen appliances

• Panels for refrigerators 

• Toys (including Lego bricks), plastic figurines, golf club heads

• Musical Parts: recorders, plastic clarinets, and piano movements

• Luggage, protective carrying

• Belt guards 

• Point-of-purchase
displays

 

ABS Machine Grade vs. Extruded

Extruded ABS is extruded and not heat treated so it is unsuitable for most close tolerance machined parts.

Machine grade ABS is compression molded, or extruded, and then annealed via gradual heating and cooling to minimize internal stresses that are hugely problematic for machining.

Extruded ABS is generally more cost effective at a lower price point.
