What It Is & Characteristics
High impact, high heat distortion, amorphous polymer with excellent thermoformability.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a non-transparent polymer that has high strength and impact resistance. Butadiene provides the flexibility and impact resistance while the styrene-acrylonitrile provides the strength, stability and (in some variations) heat resistance. ABS straddles the border between commodity plastic and engineering grades. It can be tailored over a wide range of applications and has a broad thermoforming processing window.
ABS is used across a wide array of industries, including transportation, large appliances, machine housings and pool & spa.
Sustainability. The Key To Future Value.
We have placed sustainability, environment, social and governance (ESG) issues at the very center of our focus. Not simply to comply with regulations and standards, but to drive true change that transforms tomorrow. This, we believe, is how real value is created.
