Introduction to Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is the most popular engineering thermoplastic with high rigidity and outstanding impact-resistant.

Smooth surfaces are produced via the machining of ABS. After that, it can go through various post-processing steps. Such as surface metallization, electroplating, bonding, hot pressing, coloring, and more.

ABS allows for the production of strong and very durable parts for automotive, building, electronics, home appliances, pipe & fitting, toys, and other industries. Additionally, It is suitable for food processing due to its chemical inertness.
