Absylux®
(acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene)
Download Product Brochure (43kb - pdf) 

Absylux ABS is a low cost engineering plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate. Absylux is an ideal material for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. It is widely used for machining pre-production prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to paint and glue. Natural (beige) and black Absylux are FDA compliant for use in food processing applications.

The following physical property information is based on typical values of the base acrylonitrile-butadiene- styrene resin.
