Ensinger TECARAN™ ABS material is a terpolymer and an amorphous resin. It is manufactured by combining three different compounds. The three that make up TECARAN™ ABS are acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. TECARAN™ ABS occupies the unique position of being a bridge between the industrial and other higher performance engineering thermoplastics. Its performance is characterized by toughness and impact strength, even at low temperatures, good stiffness and machinability.
