ABS is derived from acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. It is easily machined and ideal for turning, drilling, milling, sawing, die-cutting and shearing, and flat sheets can be cut with standard shop tools and line bent with standard heat strips.
ABS is a flat sheet that is easy to machine and fabricate. It is an ideal material for structural applications where impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. It is widely used for machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability.
