ABS is one of the most widely chosen thermoplastics due to its extreme durability and machinability. It has replaced many traditional materials like wood and metal in applications such as chemical containment, OEM parts, and machine guards.
ABS provides high impact resistance and durability at a lighter weight and lower cost than most other woods, metals, and even plastics. These properties along with the appealing price point make it a versatile choice for uses such as:
- Automotive Panels, Trim, & Speaker Boxes
- 3D Printed Parts
- Face Guards
- Machine Prototypes
- Chemical Containers
We supply many of our clients in the automotive industry with ABS. Notably, we have several clients who produce electrical vehicles and select ABS for panels and parts on the vehicle as it provides the necessary strength while remaining light weight for energy efficiency.
Additionally, we custom fabricate everything from photo booths to boxes for electrical housing in-house. ABS performs well when glued, thermoformed, has attached mechanical fastenings.
ABS is just one of many Thermoplastics that we carry. Other options include acrylic, HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) and Polycarbonate. Reach out to us directly and let us know what you’re working on and we’ll help you select the right material for your needs.
