ABS - Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene 

TECARAN ABS Ensinger Plastics

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene material, commonly referred to as ABS plastic, is manufactured by Ensinger in standard stock shapes for machining, and is extruded in ABS plastic sheet and rod. ABS polymer is an amorphous terpolymer which is manufactured by combining three different compounds. The three that make up ABS Plastic are acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene plastic. Using different combinations of these monomers, wide ranging different plastic ABS types can be manufactured offering a wide spectrum of different ABS properties by means of branching or copolymerization. ABS material occupies the unique position of being a bridge between the general industrial and other higher performance engineering thermoplastics. Its performance is characterized by toughness and impact strength even at low temperatures, good stiffness and machinability.
