What is ABS?
ABS plastic, which stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is a thermoplastic that is very easy to thermoform, machine, and fabricate. It is an ideal material to be used for structural applications due to its high impact resistance properties. Although extremely tough, the thermoplastic is surprisingly light, which is why it appeals to so many different industries.
Alongside its excellent shock absorption properties, the material is also very flexible, which means it can be moulded into lots of different shapes, including Lego Bricks and other various plastic children’s toys and instruments. Its strength also means it is a common material to use for car bumpers.
Being chemical resistant and extremely durable, ABS is the material to go to when it comes to manufacturing water sports equipment such as canoes, kayaks, and also protective headgear. ABS is supplied in cut to size ABS sheeting here at Eagle Plastics to provide ease in transportation and general usage.
