Material information without obligation for Acrylonitrile butadiene-styrene (ABS)

ABS (1,04-1,05 g/cm³)  is a relative light, amorphous technical thermoplastic. It is relative hard and stiff and has good impact resistance, better than allied impact resistant Polystyrene (SB). ABS features high resistance to changing temperatures and low water absorption (low hygroscopic). It is low weathering resistant. ABS will be often selected for glossy cases, multi-component-moulding parts, chrome-plated parts and for laser-labelled parts. Natural colour is beige up to yellow-brown and with special types transparent colour is possible. ABS will be processed at 240-260 °C and inflames at 400 °C with glaring and sooting flame with sweetish smell.
