How is ABS sheeting made?
ABS is a type of thermoplastic that has been made by polymerising styrene and acrylonitrile on to thermoplastic rubber. Once this has taken place, the formula is then melt compounded with the styrene acrylonitrile to create Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene – more commonly known as ABS. ABS is a highly versatile thermoplastic which means it is used in lots of different industries and applications. For ease of transportation and use, the thermoplastic is usually supplied in ABS sheet form.

What are the advantages of ABS?
Due to the polymerisation of two strong and reliable substances beforehand, once formulated ABS is an incredibly tough material. The thermoplastic boasts an impressive resistance to high temperatures – and its other existing properties are not jeopardised when exposed to these types of temperatures. In addition to temperature resistance, ABS has high impact resistance and can withstand contact with harsh chemicals. The material is retardant to flames too – and can be bought in a variety of different flame retardant grades depending on the environment it will be used in. Being a very durable material, ABS can be moulded, shaped and fabricated just as easily as High Impact Polystyrene, which means it too is a popular material for manufacturing purposes.
Using ABS for industrial and commercial uses
The extensive list of properties for ABS ensures that the thermoplastic is suitable for both industrial and commercial requirements. The strength and impact it upholds makes it appeal to the automotive industry, and you’ll find that many car bumpers will be made from ABS. Being waterproof, tough and resistant to certain chemicals and substances, ABS is also used to manufacture sports equipment such as water canoes and golf club heads. Building and construction sites benefit from the material’s toughness too and it is commonly used for making protective site helmets and headgear. Other applications include enclosures, automotive mouldings, transit trays and disability aides.
