ABS—a combination of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene resins—maintains durability through a broad range of temperatures. These plastics are highly versatile, bond well using either adhesive or solvent cement and can be painted, screen-printed and chrome-plated. They are also excellent for vacuum and pressure forming.
