Acetal (POM)

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

ABS is an amorphous thermoplastic blend (copolymer) of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene and one of the most widely used thermoplastics today. ABS provides excellent surface appearance, strength and stiffness, toughness and chemical resistance, as well as its processing ease and versatility.

Common Uses:

  • Aerospace Applications
  • Automotive Electronics and automotive interior trim
  • Industrial Applications such as electrical housing and computer components
  • Consumer uses such as TV cabinets, food mixers, telephone sets, vacuum cleaners, LEGO building bricks, razors and refrigerator door liners
  • Construction applications such as vacuum forming for baths and shower trays and is sometimes preferred to PVC for high and low temperatures

Physical Properties:

  • Specific Gravity - 1.04g/cm to 1.11g/cm
  • Tensile Strength - 5.50 to 16400 psi
  • Flexural Strength - 8680 psi
  • Impact Strength - .131 to 7.62 ft.-lb/in

General Properties:

  • Weatherabiity is restricted, but can be improved by additives.
  • Exellent chemical resistance
  • Good impact resistance at low temperatures
  • Easily processed and bonded
  • Good gloss surface finish
  • High Stiffnesa


  • Injection Molding
