Aortha ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) sheeting is a general purpose material that suits most applications where robustness is paramount.
It has very good toughness with a high degree of rigidity, and heat resistance. It is suited for both vacuum and press forming.
During thermoforming the use of a heated steel or aluminium mould is strongly advised. The ABS material is easy to thermoform and has a broad visco-elastic range that gives good melt strength over a large temperature.
Typical thermoforming temperatures: 150-185°C.
Very good impact strength compared to most polymer types
