Due to its thermal and mechanical properties, this amorphous material belongs to the polymer group of standard plastics. It has good heat distortion resistance, and a high impact strength even at low temperatures.

  • Low water absorption
  • Excellent electroplatability
  • Good noise reduction properties
  • High impact strength even at low temperatures
  • High mechanical damping
  • Good thermoformability
  • Good weldability
  • Good adhesive properties



Acryl-Butadien-Styrol hat eine geringe Wasseraufnahme, gute Schalldämpfungs-eigenschaften und besitzt eine hohe Schlagzähigkeit auch bei tiefen Temperaturen. Die Dauergebrauchstemperatur liegt bei ca. -40° C bis ca. +80°C. Acryl-Butadien-Styrol lässt sich gut thermoverformen, verschweißen und verkleben. Des Weiteren hat ABS eine hervorragende Galvanisierbarkeit.


Acryl-butadiene styrene can be machined with conventional machines and tools. Prior to machining, the product should however be at room temperature or have been stored in a normal atmosphere for at least 24 hours prior to processing. Acryl-butadiene styrene should be stored horizontally and in dry conditions. ABS can be processed in numerous ways, e.g. turning, milling, sawing, drilling, punching, welding, thermoforming, cold bending, deep drawing, electroplating.
