'Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene'
ABS is a "polymericed alloy" of the three materials acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. The material is located under the group styrene plastic. Styrene plastics are in volume one of the most used plastics.
The mechanical properties for ABS are good for impact resistance even in low temperatures. The material is stiff, and the properties are kept over a wide temperature range. The hardness and stiffness for ABS is lower than for PVC.
