ABS Unfilled


What is the Material: ABS is an amorphous material produced by combining three different compounds: acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring toughness, chemical resistance, heat resistance, abrasion resistance, and dimensional stability.

Other Considerations: The impact properties of this material are maintained at low temperatures.
