Absylux ABS Advantages & Capabilities

Absylux® ABS is a low-cost engineering plastic that is easy to machine and fabricate.

Absylux® ABS is an ideal material for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required.

Absylux® ABS 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.

Applications Include:

  • Machined prototypes
  • Structural components
  • Support blocks
  • Housings & Covers

Advantages of Absylux®

  • Excellent impact resistance
  • Good machinability
  • Excellent aesthetic qualities
  • Easy to paint and glue
  • Good strength and stiffness
  • Low cost

Manufacturing Capabilities:

  • Rod: 1/4” to 8” diameter
  • Sheet: 1/16” to 6” thick
  • Film: .001” to .029” thick
