ABS Plastic

ABS plastic material is a combination of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene resins. This material is hard and durable through a broad range of temperatures. ABS is highly versatile and bonds well using either adhesive or solvent cement. ABS plastics can be painted, screen-printed and chrome-plated. Additionally, it is extruded into sheets with surface texturing, and used extensively for both vacuum and pressure forming. Other advantages to using ABS plastics include strength and durability, heat and chemical resistance, cost-effectiveness, and ease of processing.
