What is ABS?
ABS is a thermoplastic that is popular due to its numerous varying properties, which make it ideal for a wide range of applications.
Although the plastic is extremely tough, it is also surprisingly light, which means it is easily transportable. ABS plastic sheets are both chemical and weather resistant making the thermoplastic an ideal material to use for outdoor applications.
ABS thermoplastic is also very flexible. Perhaps one of the most appealing properties for ABS sheets however, is its high impact resistance properties which do not decrease under lower temperatures.
This makes it a very impressive thermoplastic that stands out amongst other materials. Here at Eagle Plastics, leading suppliers for plastic sheeting nationwide, we supply our cut to size ABS in many different sizes and thicknesses.
The many applications of ABS
The highly durable ABS lends itself to many different uses, both commercial and industrial. Its high impact resistance makes it a popular material to use for car bumpers.
This quality combined with its weather and chemical resistance, also means it is perfect to use for manufacturing sports equipment such as canoes, and lacrosse sticks.
Children’s toys and musical instruments are also often made out of ABS such as clarinets, and Lego bricks – this is down to the plastic’s durability.
It’s surprising light weight in comparison to its strength and durability also making it great for protective head gear for use on construction sites and extreme sports.
