Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene - ABS Transparent

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Can be used in applications where light transmission is desired.

Disadvantages

Tends to have a slight tint. Has reduced tensile strength flexural modulus, elongation at break, notched izod impact strength and heat distortion temperature compared with ABS (medium impact).
