ABS Technical Data and Information
ABS combines toughness and rigidity with reasonably good chemical resistance. Extruded ABS sheet can be easily thermoformed giving excellent mould detail with most conventional equipment. ABS is easily machined and may be bored, turned, drilled, milled, saw cut, die-cut, routed and sheared using high speed carbide tipped tools. ABS can also be filed, sanded, ground, buffed and polished.
Automotive interior and exterior trim, laboratory equipment, luggage, office accessories, display and point of sale stands, machine parts and covers.
City Plastics carry a range of sizes, thicknesses, colours and textures in stock.
Standard colours are white and black.
Standard thicknesses are 1.0 mm, 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm, 3.0 mm and 4.5 mm
Black is readily available in a textured finish.
Sheet material can be custom manufactured to your requirements, subject to minimum quantities.
High rigidity and impact strength. Excellent abrasion resistance. Excellent electrical properties, moisture, and creep resistance. ABS resists inorganic salts, alkalies and many acids.
