Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) at Piedmont Plastics

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, commonly known as ABS, combines three unique compounds to create a versatile and cost-effective thermoplastic polymer. It is tough, rigid, and impact-resistant, making it the perfect material for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.

At Piedmont Plastics, we stock a wide range of ABS materials in plate, sheet, and rod profiles with both standard and customized lengths. We also stock an assortment of textures and colors.

Key Features and Benefits of ABS

ABS is a low-cost plastic material with exceptional thermoforming, machinability, and impact-resistant characteristics. Best known for its rigid design, glossy exterior, and electrical insulation properties, ABS possesses a combination of properties that makes it ideal to use across industries.

ABS boasts exceptional durability, low moisture absorption, and ease of fabrication. Thinner gauges can even be machined and die-cut with simple effort. ABS is also known for its highly heat-tolerant design, which allows for easy thermoforming and sonic welding on wood, epoxy, ceramic, and aluminum. Furthermore, parts made with ABS can be joined with machine screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, and spring steel fasteners.

Among other things, ABS is recognized for its mechanical toughness, wide temperature range, good dimensional stability, and exceptional chemical resistance.
