Materials - ABS

High mechanical strength and stiffness in a low-cost plastic.

This low-cost engineering plastic offers exceptional mechanical and surface strength for a wide range of parts used in high-impact applications. Easily machined, thermoformed and heatformed, ABS can also be painted and glued for added versatility. Excellent thermal and dimensional stability expand its machinability to preproduction prototypes.
