What is ABS?

ABS is a go-to versatile thermoplastic for machined prototypes and end-use parts due to its durability and low cost. It’s often chosen for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required.

ABS Flame Retardant

We also offer ABS Flame Retardant, which has a slightly lower tensile strength and heat deflection than standard ABS but has an added benefit of flame resistance.

Common Industries and Applications for Machined ABS

ABS is often used in structural components in automotive, consumer goods, and electronics industries. 

  • Automotive components like dashboards, instrument panels, and center consoles
  • Consumer product parts including vacuums, washing machines, and furniture
  • Consumer electronics components like electrical enclosures and housings 

Key Benefits of ABS: 

  • Impact resistance
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Easy-to-machine
  • Cost-effective
