ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

ABS plastics provide a balanced combination of mechanical toughness, wide temperature range, good dimensional stability, chemical resistance, electrical insulating properties, and ease of fabrication. ABS plastic is available in a wide range of grades including medium and high-impact, heat-resistant, plateable fire-retardant, and both low and high gloss varieties.

Brand Names: Cycolac, Lustran, Hival

Applications: Computer housings, small appliances, automotive interior trim and medical components

Tensile Strength Flexural Modulus Impact Strength Max Temp. Chemical Resistance
5000-7500 psi 270,000-380,000 psi 3.0-7.5 ft-lb/in notched izod 140°-200° F Poor to Fair

Advantages

  • Good impact resistance with toughness and rigidity

  • Metal coatings have excellent adhesion to ABS

  • Excellent processability and appearance

Disadvantages

  • Poor solvent resistance
  • Low dielectric strength (not a good insulator)

  • Low continuous service temperature (melts easily)
