Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is an opaque thermoplastic and amorphous polymer and is an ideal choice for applications that require an inexpensive, strong, stiff plastic that holds up well to external impacts.
Very high impact strength and toughness
Excellent tensile strength and stiffness
Very good dimensional stability
ABS plastics have good electrical properties that are fairly constant over a wide range of frequencies. They also work well when paired with metal coatings because the coating is able to adhere strongly to ABS plastic.
