ABS is a raw plastic material with high impact strength, outstanding impact resistance, machinability. ABS also has impressive thermal qualities and thermoforming characteristics. This makes ABS a very popular material amongst thermoformers. It is an excellent choice for machine housings, retail store fixtures, and point-of-purchase displays when impact resistance or durability is required.

Different top layers are available such as:

  • PMMA (matt or glossy);
  • Matt ABS;
  • ASA (Matt or semi gloss);
  • Soft touch;

ABS plastic is available:

  • with a semi gloss surface layer that thermoforms quickly
  • with matt surface layer that remains matt also after thermoforming
  • with a surface layer of high gloss PMMA (acrylic)
  • with a matt or semi gloss surface layer of ASA material
  • with a matt coloured PMMA surface layer
  • with a matt soft touch layer
