ABS

Starting from $29

Ever step on an indestructible LEGO with your innocent bare feet? You can thank ABS plastic for that. The good news is that you can make your own things that hurt to be stepped on, too. Or maybe just useful things like electrical wall socket plates, pipe fittings, structural panels, and automotive parts. We don’t judge.

But we would judge you for not getting the best price estimate on your next project requiring ABS.

ABS plastic, what’s it good for?

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a bit of a mouthful, so you can see why we use the acronym. Our ABS plastic is a ridiculously sturdy thermoplastic that is often used in prototyping due to its low cost and high strength-to-density ratio.

Like the human abs it shares its shorthand with, this material can take a punch. Extremely rigid, abrasion and strain-resistant, with a wide variety of strengths (tensile strength, dimensional stability, etc.), ABS finds success across many industries.

You’ll want to keep it away from an open flame and out of direct sunlight for extended periods, but our tough plastic can beef up your next design with a lightweight and low-cost solution.

For this material, we use our CNC Routing tools.
