About ABS sheet plastic
ABS sheet plastic is a type of thermoplastic that is formed by the polymerisation of styrene and acrylonitrile onto thermoplastic rubber, the thermoplastic rubber is then melt compounded with styrene acrylonitrile. The combining of all these materials forms ABS, a material that boasts a long list of properties and lends itself to many different applications.
The properties of ABS
ABS, which stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is not only aesthetically pleasing but is also incredibly resistant to chemicals and high temperatures. The material is so tough and it is also available at Eagle Plastics in a flame retardant grade. ABS plastic sheet material demonstrates a great ease of fabrication and formability too, similar levels to those of High Impact Polystyrene. This popular thermoplastic also offers fantastic durability, alongside a high impact strength. ABS sheet material is a common go-to thermoplastic because it offers a long list of impressive internal properties as well as being able to be purchased in a wide variety of textures and colours – which means you can choose what is best for your project.
What can ABS sheet plastic be used for?
Due to its extensive list of desirable properties, ABS plastic is used in numerous day-to-day products. Its ability to be used in high temperatures makes it a great material for automotive mouldings, enclosures, transit trays and disability aides. Being incredibly resistant to impact makes ABS a common material to be used for car bumpers too. The sports equipment industry makes use of the material’s high impact resistance as well, and once thermoformed, ABS is used for equipment like water canoes. You will also find that most protective headgear for building and construction is made from ABS sheet plastic.

There are lots of different thermoplastics on the market – including high impact styrene sheet. Thermoplastics can be applied to all sorts of day-to-day applications, but you’ll also find that the materials are used to manufacture various objects and parts and equipment. Here at Eagle Plastics, as leading high impact polystyrene suppliers, we’ll happily guide you through everything you need to know about thermoplastics; so you can be sure that you are going to purchase one that meets all of your requirements.
High impact styrene sheet explained
High impact styrene sheet, often known as HIPs, is a type of material that is made from plastic polymers. Like all thermoplastics, the plastic polymers in the bonds allow the material to melt, cool and solidify when exposed to certain temperatures. Using different temperatures to control their physical form, they can be easily shaped and manipulated to create the desired object. High impact polystyrene is a rubber modified version of general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) – the addition of rubber into the formula increases the amount of strength and impact resistance the material has. The increase and enhancement of these useful properties therefore mean that the thermoplastic can be used in a much wider range of applications and environments.
Advantages of HIPS
High impact polystyrene is a very malleable type of thermoplastic, and it’s the material’s malleability that makes it one of the most go-to thermoplastics on the market for manufacturing purposes. HIPS can be moulded over and over into countless different shapes and objects, and still retain its defining properties. This means that no matter how often it is reshaped, the thermoplastic will still be just as strong and durable. The surprisingly light material also boasts a high impact resistance and tensile strength. Its ability to be fabricated repeatedly means that HIPS is also considered recyclable – this is ideal if you or your company are conscious about the environment and your carbon footprint. Another advantage of HIPS is the fact that it can be made in different colours and variations. As leading high impact polystyrene sheet suppliers, we stock the thermoplastic in an extensive range of colours and thicknesses – so you can be sure to find exactly what you need with us.
Using high impact polystyrene for your project
All of the properties belonging to HIPS make the material suitable for a wide scope of applications. Its strength and impact resistance make HIPS a perfect material to make children’s toys out of. With so many colours and attractive finishes to choose from however, it also remains one of the most common thermoplastics to create marketing and promotional displays with. Many Point of Sale displays and shop signage will be made from high impact polystyrene.

As one of the world’s most used thermoplastics, ABS has the durability and adaptability to be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial requirements. The sheeting has an incredibly tough impact resistance and will maintain this toughness no matter what type of shape it is made into and what type of manufacturing process it has undertaken. Although acrylonitrile butadiene styrene sheet is strong, it is also very light, and therefore can be transported and fabricated with ease. The thermoplastic also boasts a fantastic chemical and weather resistance, which means it can make a great material to use in outdoor applications. With the ability to withstand very low temperatures whilst retaining its high impact resistance, ABS is the go-to thermoplastic to use in harsh temperatures too.
What can ABS be used for?
With a long list of useful properties, there are lots of different manufacturing companies that benefit from using ABS. It can be purchased in a variety of colours and textures too – giving it an even wider scope of uses and applications. Its high impact resistance combined with its minimal weight means that the material is suitable and safe for use with young children. Being such a durable thermoplastic, you’ll find that lots of children’s toys such as musical instruments and building blocks are often made from ABS. The water sports sector benefits from ABS too, as its chemical and weather resistance makes it a perfect material to make helmets and canoes from. Possessing good shock absorption properties also means that ABS can be used in the automotive industry and it is often used to make car bumpers. Other uses for ABS include pipework for drains and ventilation, kitchen appliances, and construction work.

Is ABS recyclable? What colours can ABS be bought in? Can ABS be used in extreme temperatures? What does ABS stand for? These are just a few of the many questions that some of our customers have about acrylonitrile butadiene styrene sheet material. Luckily for them, we aren’t just suppliers of ABS, we are also experts. With over twenty years of experience under our belts, we’ve got plenty of experience working with ABS, and have established an incredibly in-depth knowledge about the thermoplastic.

Below, we’ve answered some important questions about ABS that we think might help our customers gain a wider understanding of the popular thermoplastic.
Is ABS recyclable?
Like most thermoplastics, ABS is recyclable. ABS – which stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene – is a thermoplastic which means it is made out of plasticised polymers that enable the material to melt into a liquid form when heated, and then turn into a solid again once cooled. With this in mind, ABS can be used over and over again, as it can just be melted into its liquid state, before being made into the next product. Even more so, ABS sheet still retains its extensive list of properties throughout its moulding and fabrication processes – so you’ll be getting a strong, durable and resistant product no matter how many times it’s been recycled.
What are the properties of ABS?
ABS plastic sheet material has a wide range of properties that make it ideal for use in lots of different industries and applications. It is a very strong thermoplastic that boasts a great impact resistance, and this toughness is retained throughout its manufacturing processes. However, whilst having impressive strength, ABS also weighs very little, and being lightweight means it can be transported easily in its convenient sheet form. The thermoplastic also has an excellent resistance to chemicals and weather, which is why it is commonly used for outdoor applications. In addition to this, ABS can withstand very low temperatures that do not impact its resistance, so if you’re looking for a material that can be used in extremely cold temperatures, ABS should definitely be considered.
What colour is ABS?
Here at Eagle Plastics, ABS can be purchased in a number of different colours, textures, and finishes. Any applications of the thermoplastic will require specific colours or aesthetics, so as a leading supplier of ABS, we want to be able to meet as many of these requirements as we can. Grey, Red, Black and White are the most common colours of ABS we stock, and we can also provide the sheeting with flame retardant properties too.
