ABS-Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styreneis an opaque thermoplastic that possesses a diverse combination of properties. ABS has perhaps the best balance of properties when cost is a factor. It has good chemical and stress-resistance as well as a combination of toughness, rigidity and creep resistance. Easily machined with high impact strength, and good resistance to chemical and […]
Acrylic is a clear thermoplastic with about 92% transparency, making it useful in many optical applications. Unaffected by moisture it is also a good electrical insulator for low frequencies and has very good resistance for weathering. Acrylics are typically made by one of three processes, extrusion, continuously manufactured and casting.
Lexan has better insulation properties than glass and is inherently high impact making it an excellent candidate for glazing for economical protection against breakage or intrusion. Opaque sheet options combine for ease of thermoforming or cold forming.
