Key Properties

A hard thermoplastic. Tough (maintains impact resistance at low temperatures). Easily processed & may be electroplated. Easily bonded. Good gloss surface finish. Used in preference to PVC for high (50°-70°C) or low (less than –20°C.)

Strengths

  • High rigidity.
  • Good impact resistance, even at low temperatures.
  • Easily processed (may be electroplated).
  • Good insulating properties.
  • Good weldability.
  • Good abrasion and stain resistance.
  • High dimensional stability (low water absorption).
  • Good paintability and platability.

Limits

  • Poor weathering resistance.
  • Ordinary grades burn easily and continue to burn once the flame is removed.
  • Scratches easily.
  • Poor solvent resistance, particularly aromatic, ketones and esters.
  • Can suffer from stress cracking in the presence of some greases.

Warning

Due to its hygroscopic nature ABS may require drying before processing. Dry at around 70 oc for about 75 minutes per mm thickness to prevent blisters when thermoformed.

ABS - Colours

The colours shown represent the closest match we can show on a website. They are not exact as lighting, reprographic methods and different producers cause considerable variation. If you want an exact match please send us a sample or colour reference number from the Pantone of RAL charts. If you need assistance with this please click here.

Please remember that not all colours are available in all thicknesses. Please ask us for current stock avaiability. Stocks cannot be reserved until they are paid for and the order placed on the factory.
