Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS)

ABS Products

ABS, or acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, is a common thermoplastic that is easy to machine to close tolerances, easy to thermoform, and relatively low cost. The ease of machining and overall performance of ABS have made it one of the most popular materials for such wide-ranging applications as equipment housings, model making, storage bins and trays, and interior trim for vehicles and aircraft.

thyssenkrupp Engineered Plastics / Online Plastics® is your #1 source for high quality ABS plastic sheet and ABS plastic rod at competitive prices.

We offer ABS sheet in a range of grades in standard sizes up to 48” long and thicknesses up to 2”. We can cut-to-size to meet the dimensional requirements of your application. ABS sheet is available in black or natural colors and with a variety of surface textures.

Our ABS rod is available in various grades in four standard lengths and a variety of diameters up to 5”. We can cut-to-length as needed. Black and natural colored ABS rod is available.

ABS Properties

ABS is one of the few non-metallic materials that can be electroplated. It exhibits good chemical and stress cracking resistance, and is resistant to alkalis, certain oils, mineral acids, and inorganic salt solutions.

ABS sheet and rod are ideal for applications requiring turning, drilling, milling, sawing, die-cutting, or shearing. These materials offer excellent abrasion, moisture, and creep resistance, and good dielectric properties. ABS rod and sheet are easily thermoformed and yield great heat detail.
