Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene - ABS Medium Impact

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Higher tensile strength and creep resistance, along with hardness and scratch resistance than high impact class.

Disadvantages

Relatively low notched izod impact strength ( ~0.2 KJ/m - 3.7 ft lb/in ) compared with high impact grades ( ~ 0.4 KJ/m - 7.5 ft lb/in ).
