ABS Properties

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) material exhibits a variety of outstanding characteristics. It boasts a tensile strength (yield) of 40.7 MPa, showcasing considerable strength. Simultaneously, it achieves an elongation at break of 53.4%, demonstrating excellent ductility. In terms of hardness, ABS has a Rockwell R hardness of 107, indicating good abrasion resistance and durability. Additionally, its heat deflection temperature reaches 97.4°C, indicating its ability to maintain stability in high-temperature environments. Finally, ABS has a melting point of 267°C, meaning it can be processed at relatively high temperatures without deforming or melting. Combining these features, ABS material emerges as an ideal choice for various applications, including but not limited to consumer product manufacturing and the automotive industry.

Surface Finishes

We offer a range of finishes to enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your components. Typically, machined ABS parts are available in classic beige (natural) and sleek black colors. However, for those seeking a more personalized touch, custom colors may be obtainable through direct sourcing.

As Machined: Our CNC machining process ensures that ABS parts are precision-machined to exact specifications, albeit with subtle tool marks or delicate swirls on the surface. These marks are a testament to the craftsmanship involved and add a distinctive character to the finished product.

Bead Blast: For those desiring a matte finish, we offer bead blasting services. By bombarding the surface with fine glass beads, we can reduce shine and create a more subdued aesthetic. It’s worth noting that while bead blasting is effective for achieving a matte look, it may result in uneven surfaces or potentially impact finely detailed features. Rest assured, our team exercises meticulous care to minimize any such effects and deliver exceptional results.

Smart Design Strategies for Cost Efficiency

ABS stands out as an incredibly cost-effective plastic with remarkable machining capabilities and outstanding mechanical properties. However, to optimize cost savings even further, engineers can employ ingenious strategies such as pre-injection molding for prototypes. While ABS itself boasts affordability, the investment in molds can pose a significant expense. Once a mold is meticulously designed, manufactured, and operational, the cost per part becomes negligible. Nevertheless, before committing valuable resources to an elaborate mold, it’s prudent to fabricate a prototype from ABS. This approach ensures that the desired part features are sturdy and perform impeccably, thus mitigating any potential risks or costly revisions down the line.
