ABS rod, formally known as Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is a copolymer material renowned for its impeccable dimensional stability, high rigidity, and exceptional impact resistance. Due to its impressive tensile strength, ABS rods are used in various engineering and thermoforming applications. Its versatility extends to both industrial and domestic settings, where it serves as a crucial component in applications such as protective face guards for plastic sockets, essential keyboard components, and even as the fundamental material for the iconic LEGO® bricks†.
At PAR Group, we can convert and machine ABS into bespoke parts using our in-house CNC machining options.
Commonly manufactured into face guards for plug sockets, LEGO® bricks, or musical instruments are just a few of the more domestic uses of ABS. It's also a key component of the medical, automotive and construction industries.
