ABS Sheet and Rod

(Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene or Cycolac® brand)


In stock we carry Natural and Black ABS Rod and ABS SheetMachined Black ABS Rod Part and ABS Sheets

The ABS  sheet in machine grade (.125″ – 6.0″) is smooth on both sides and is either Black or Natural (straw-tan-ivory-beige). Material is easily cut with common cutting tools, can be machined similar to woods or soft metals (brass), CNC machining is appropriate. FDA approved for use in food processing applications. Material can be bonded with solvents or attached to itself with ultra-sonic or heat welding methods. Can be sanded, drilled, and worked like a hard wood. Still not sure ABS sheet or rod is the proper material for your application, consult our free Plastic Materials Selection Guide.

  • Why you should use ABS sheet or rod:

    • Material That is FDA Compliant
    • Material has Good Mechanical Properties
    • Very High Impact Strength
    • It is Bondable / Weldable to itself
    • Cuts well with standard cutting tools
    • Material is Paintable, Machinable, and Heat / Vacuum Formable
    • Same material as Black Drain Pipe used in homes

    While ABS sheet and rod are wonderful mechanical plastics, so is Acetal. Here is a comparison: ABS versus Acetal/ Delrin

      

    ABS Rod and ABS Sheet are very strong and tough, and applicable to be used in most general purpose applications. Good dimensional stability and machining properties. Available is wide range of sizes in both sheet and rod, and custom formulations and sizes.This materials is… high impact and has a heat deflection 190 °F.  It is easily bondable and paintable with common acrylic or latex paints or can be silk-screened. Thin gauge material (.040″ – .250″) is available with a haircell texture on one side, and smooth on the other.

    • Durable and impact resistant
    • Easy to machine
    • Dimensionally stable
    • Bondable, welds well with solvents or heat
    • FDA compliant for contact with food

    Still not sure ABS sheet or rod is the proper material for your application, consult our free Plastic Materials Selection Guide.

  • Applications – Frequently used in:
    • Model / Prototype parts
    • FDA Compliant Machined Parts
    • Heat Formed and Vacuum Formed PartsMachined Black ABS Part
    • Strip Heat / Bent Thin Gauge Covers and Housings
    • Inserts, Spacers, and Mounting Plates
    • Paintable Machined or Cut Parts
    • Same Material As Used In Black Plastic Drain Pipe

  • “I love that I can machine this stuff easily, and it also can be bonded together. Thanks” – Thomas F. “It is really cool that the ABS Sheet is FDA approved. I use Black ABS to machine custom fluid handling valve bodies, and it machines really well for me.” – Luis M. “My company uses the machine grade ABS in producing large models. We can cut and glue this material very easily, and we sand and paint the final parts. They come out great.” – Ricky C.
