As a shapeless, impact-resistant, and opaque thermoplastic, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is regularly used across the manufacturing sector for a variety of purposes. ABS plastic offers excellent dimensional stability, making it easy to machine, fabricate, paint, and glue. Used to manufacture some of the most durable and widely used plastic products on the market today, ABS is a premier choice for plastic products and parts across myriad applications and industries.
Emco Plastics provides ABS plastic sheets in a variety of sizes and thicknesses for use as a base material in numerous types of fabrication projects.
ABS thermoplastic is created from a mixture of three monomer units:
As a thermoplastic, ABS may be melted to make it more pliable and easier to mold. Once cooled, it becomes solid and keeps the molded shape. ABS won’t degrade when re-melted and re-used, which means that processes involving this material generate almost no waste. As such, ABS is a preferred material for injection molding.
Other properties of ABS include:
There are several advantages of using ABS plastic, including:
The ease of machinability, a long list of beneficial properties and advantages, and inherent cost-efficiency make ABS plastic ideal for numerous applications. Common applications include:
ABS plastic sheets are used across multiple industries to manufacture a comprehensive array of parts, components, and finished goods. The durability, ease of manipulation, low cost, and numerous beneficial physical properties make ABS plastic the preferred choice when compared with many other materials.
