ABS CNC Machining

ABS is a relatively inexpensive thermoplastic engineering plastic. ABS has good mechanical properties, impact resistance, heat resistance, and machinability. It is frequently used to prototype parts before injection moulding. CNC machined ABS is an excellent choice for production-like parts with mechanical properties.

Features of ABS plastic :

  • Impact resistance, toughness, and rigidity
  • Heat and cold resistant.
  • Resistant to aqueous acids, alkalis, concentrated hydrochloric and phosphoric acids.
  • Alcohol resistance.
  • Resistance to animal, vegetable, and mineral oils.
  • It works as an ideal electrical insulator with added moisture resistance.
  • Easy to machine.
