TPS® ABS

<Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene Copolymer>

Pleasing to the Eye and Withstanding Impact.

ABS is a thermoplastic resin produced by copolymerizing acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene.

Uses

  • Optics-related components
  • Electric/electronic devices components
  • Medical devices components
  • Food devices components

Characteristics

  • With respect to chemical resistance, ABS dissolves in solvents but withstands bases and acids.
  • ABS has excellent adhesiveness and coating application property, and is widely used as a cutting material for models.
  • ABS has high surface hardness and good luster.

ABS Super (Low-Warping Blade)

Plastic materials used in prototype models are processed in an extremely complex and precise manner. It is very difficult to finish conventional materials in a highly precise manner; therefore, the need for low-warping materials is growing rapidly. In response to such need, we have developed an ABS plastic of a low-warping grade using the know-how developed for our popular TPS® POM Super.

Characteristics

  • The amount of deformation of the ABS Super is approximately one-half that of conventional products.
  • Processing time can be shortened due to minimal changes in dimensions and shape during cutting.
