ABS is a terpolymer made by polymerizing styrene, acrylonitrile and polybutadiene. It first became available in the early 1950s in an attempt to obtain the best properties of both polystyrene and styrene acrylonitrile.
It combines three unique compounds to create a versatile and economical thermoplastic polymer. An impact resistant and durable product with low moisture absorption rates, ABS is easy to produce for indoor and outdoor applications.

Temapol international offers a range of monolayer, multilayer, and coextruded sheet products allowing our customers to achieve the right balance of properties for their application.

Best known for its rigid design, glossy exterior and electrical insulation properties, ABS benefits from a highly heat-resistant design that makes it easy to thermoform. It is an excellent replacement for wood, metal, polyethylene, and foam urethanes and can also be used in other applications.

Their thermoformability and ability to maintain their strength at high temperatures make these offerings a popular solution for applications which require movement resistance and/or boiling water sterilization.
