Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, or more commonly known as ABS, is a material that can be purchased in the form of ABS plastic sheets.
ABS plastic sheets have a whole host of benefits and are highly suitable for commercial, industrial and domestic use.
Benefits of ABS Plastic Sheets
ABS sheet is one of the most common thermoplastic sheets and is developed from High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) sheet.
Some of the main benefits of using ABS plastic sheets for your projects include:
- Resistance to chemicals and harsh temperatures
- Versatile for a wide range of applications
- Fantastic impact strength
- Lightweight (and therefore easy to transport)
- Suitable for outdoor applications due to weather resistance
- Suitable for thermoforming
- Can easily be vacuum formed
- Can easily be sawed, routed and glued
- Extremely affordable
There are also many specialist grades available to meet specific characteristics, whether that be impact resistance, UV resistance, fire retardancy, weather resistance or food grades.
Common Uses of ABS Plastic Sheets
ABS is a popular choice of plastic sheet due to its durability, adaptability, and versatility in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.
Some of the most popular uses include trims for car interiors and exteriors, but also for aircraft, luggage cases, home appliances, machine parts, pipes and fittings, refrigeration, vacuum cleaners, prototypes, and is also commonly used in 3D printing due to its great thermoforming properties.
