ABS extruded parts and ABS profile extrusion

ABS or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a common thermoplastic polymer typically used for many applications. This engineering plastic is popular due to its low production cost and the ease with which the material is machined by plastic manufacturers. Better yet, its natural benefits of affordability and machinability do not hinder the ABS material’s desired properties:

• Impact Resistance
• Structural Strength and Stiffness
• Chemical Resistance
• Excellent High and Low Temperature Performance
• Great Electrical Insulation Properties
• Easy to Paint and Glue

In addition ABS can also be painted and electroplated to produce aesthetically superior plastic parts that look like metal.

ABS Extruded Parts

ABS can be used to make parts of any shape varying from simple linear shapes to hollow and multi-cavaty profiles. They primarily used where the applications require higher temperature resistance compared to PVC.

ABS profile Application

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene can be extruded to create lightweight, highly impact-resistant ABS extrusion profiles. The extruded ABS profile’s superior homogenous glossy and matte surface is its greatest benefit. Additionally, some unique forms of rubber can be co-extruded with ABS profiles. Extruded profiles that have both a rigid and flexible part are also available. As a result, it is also commonly utilised in toys, construction, appliances, and furniture.
