ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) is an economical engineering plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate. ABS is an ideal material for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. It is widely used for machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is highly versatile to paint and glue.
