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.
