Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene - ABS High Impact UV Stabilised

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Can be used in outdoor applications involving exposure to UV radiation (sunlight).

Disadvantages

Should not be processed above 220°C ( 430°F ) to prevent material degradation. Incorporation of UV stabiliser reduces notched izod impact strength ( ~ 0.3 KJ/m -5.6 ft lb/in ) compared with unmodified high impact grades.
