ABS

Introduction to ABS

Plastic Materials ABS

ABS is a commonly used thermoplastic polymer with excellent impact, temperature and chemical resistance. It is also easy to machine and process and has a smooth surface finish. ABS can undergo various post-processing treatments, including coloring, surface metallization, welding, electroplating, bonding, hot pressing and more.

 

ABS is used for various applications across a wide range of industries, including automotive, manufacturing, electronics, consumer goods, construction and more.
