ABS Plastic Properties

ABS Plastic Sheets offer a range of excellent properties for those looking for something that is durable, insulating, chemical resistant and more. Read below to find out everything you need to know about ABS Plastics properties.

Physical strength:

Is ABS plastic durable? With a tensile strength of 46 MPa and 74 MPa, that’s a certainty. It has excellent impact resistance, and good toughness and rigidity, too.


ABS plastic recycling is relatively easy, thanks to the fact it can be heated up and cooled again while retaining its strength. This also lends it great high and low-temperature performance.

Chemical resistance:

Because it’s highly chemical resistant, ABS plastic is suitable for use and a safe plastic in a range of settings with otherwise hazardous chemicals.


With great electric insulating properties, it’s often used with electronics and for safety gear.

Resistant to damage:

As well as being chemical resistant, ABS is great at absorbing shock, whilst also resisting heat and scratches.

Easily manufactured and customised:

It adheres very well to metallic surfaces, can be glued and painted with ease, and is highly cost-effective.


ABS is a versatile and reliable material that can be customised in a range of ways. Take a look at our product ranges to see how it can best serve your requirements.
