ABS (Acrylonitrile butadine styrene)

ABS, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is a member of the styrene family of polymers. It shares many properties with polystyrene, the main difference being that it is considerably tougher and more resistant to impact, even at temperatures of up to – 40ºC (for special-grade ABS). It is one of the most widely used plastics and is used in the automotive, refrigeration, print and signage industries. ABS can be vacuum formed and screen printed. ABS is suitable for indoor as well as extended outdoor use when UV coated.

• impact resistant even at low temperatures
• it is strong, hard and rigid.
• Easy to vacuum form, cut and print – without requiring corona treatment
• highly shock-absorbant
• can be glued
• Ideal working temperature range : 18 to 25 degrees celcius
• continuous working temperature range : -30 to 60 degrees celcius
• can be recycled
• can be manufactured with UV coating to reduce yellowing.
• manufactured in different finishes – matt, gloss, leather grain.
• has excellent electrical insulating properties

• signage and advertising
• architectural fittings
• engineering – automotive and aircraft components and interiors
• casing for electronic and electrical devices (cell phones, etc)
• instrument panels, radiator grills and headlight housings
• Household goods – toys, luggage, garden furniture, household appliance casings and refrigerator interiors
• Medical (lab equipment)
• Safety equipment (protective head gear)
• fabricated boxes, point of sale and vacuum formed items
