ABS MACHINE GRADE (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply Inc distributor of Machine Grade ABS rod and sheet.

 

 

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic is ideal for when excellent rigidity, hardness and heat resistance are required. ABS plastic is known for its toughness, rigid thermoplasticity and strength. ABS is easily machined and ideal for turning, drilling and milling. ABS is heat resistant and impact resistant. It performs well at low temperatures and operates under a wide temperature range and low heat conductivity. ABS also has high chemical, corrosion and abrasion-resistance, and a good dimensional stability. ABS parts are resistant to many materials and chemicals, making it versatile and useable in many conditions. Machine grade ABS is compression molded, or extruded, and then annealed via gradual heating and cooling to minimize internal stresses that are hugely problematic for machining. Machine grade ABS is normally available only down to about 1/4" or 3/8" in thickness. Machine grade ABS is priced roughly twice as high as thermoformable sheet grade ABS with textured finishes .030 - .250".  Colors natural or black.
