ABS sheet (Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) is one of the most widely used thermoplastics that we offer. ABS sheets have replaced traditional metal materials due to its ease of formability, increased durability, and better weather ability. Its high rigidity, impact strength, and abrasion resistance combines with its cost effectiveness to make it the ideal material for a wide variety of vehicle applications including:
- Speak boxes
- Accessory boxes
ABS sheets also exhibit a high resistance to chemicals, moisture, and high temperatures making it a popular choice for chemical handling tanks. It can be machined, drilled, or die-cut with relative ease.
