ABS Machining

A Guide to ABS CNC Machined Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations

What is ABS?ABS Machined Part

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is an opaque thermoplastic made from a two phase polymer blend. ABS is well known for its impact resistance and toughness.

ABS is both harder and more scratch resistant than PET and POM (Acetal), but has a lower thermal stability. The characteristics of basic ABS offer a wide scope for modification by varying the proportion of the components used in the polymer blend.

Main Attributes of ABS:

  • Good machinability
  • Easy bonding and weldability
  • Gamma and x-ray resistant
  • Good toughness and impact strength even at low temperatures
  • High stiffness
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Can be used in temperatures ranging from -50°C to +70°C
  • Opaque
  • Electrically insulating
  • Resists scratching
  • Low density
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Good damping
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Not weather resistant
  • Limited resistance to acid and caustic solutions
  • Recyclable
