Plastic Material Guide

 

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

ABS plastics provide a balanced combination of mechanical toughness, wide temperature range, good dimensional stability, chemical resistance, electrical insulating properties, and ease of fabrication.  It is available in a wide range of grades including medium and high-impact, heat-resistant, plate-able fire-retardant, and both low and high gloss varieties. Furthermore, it is well suited for injection molding and use by most injection molding companies.

Applications: Computer housings, small appliances, automotive interior trim and medical components

Advantages

  • Good impact resistance with toughness and rigidity
  • Metal coatings have excellent adhesion to ABS
  • Excellent process-ability and appearance

 

Disadvantages

  • Poor solvent resistance
  • Low dielectric strength (not a good insulator)
  • Low continuous service temperature (melts easily)
