TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Basic Knowledge of ABS

What is ABS?

ABS, short for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is a widely used thermoplastic because of its affordability and exceptional toughness. CNC machining ABS offers a cost-effective method for shaping custom parts without the need for expensive molds.

Considering its economical nature, the machined ABS has impressive characteristics, such as toughness, rigidity, and shock absorbance. It possesses good dimensional stability and excellent impact strength. In terms of finish, machined ABS parts may have minor tool marks or swirls on the surface, giving them a distinctive appearance.

For those seeking a more matte finish, bead blasting with fine glass beads is an option to reduce shine. However, it's important to note that bead-blasting plastics may result in uneven surfaces or potential damage to finely detailed features.

FAQ

Machining ABS Buying FAQ

ABS plastic is an excellent choice for general-purpose prototypes, pre-molded prototypes, parts that are subject to impact and require toughness, or when low cost is required.
ABS plastic is susceptible to UV (ultraviolet) radiation from the sun, leading to degradation and discoloration over time. While ABS has good overall durability, prolonged exposure to sunlight may cause it to become brittle and lose some of its mechanical properties. Stabilizers or coatings are needed for ABS formulations to enhance their UV resistance.
ABS plastic is generally considered safe for use with hot water, but there are limits to its temperature resistance. ABS has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of around 176°F (80°C), so it can withstand relatively high temperatures. However, it's important to stay within the recommended temperature range for sustained use with hot water to prevent deformation or other issues.
ABS plastic is known for its toughness and impact resistance, making it less prone to breaking than other plastics. However, like any material, it has its limitations. The impact resistance of ABS can be affected by factors such as temperature and the presence of stress concentrations.
ABS is generally considered safe for use with potable water, and it meets regulatory standards for this application. However, ensuring that the ABS material complies with relevant food-grade and water-contact regulations is important. Also, proper manufacturing processes, such as avoiding additives that may leach into the water, are essential to maintain water safety.
