ABS is short for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene.

It is a highly versatile, impact resistant, durable material that is commonly used in electronic products such as connectors and switches. It is also commonly used in 3D printing.

The chemical properties of ABS give it a very low melting point, meaning it can be easily melted down and moulded into different shapes. It can also be very easy to be recycled without significant chemical degradation, which means repeatedly melted down and moulded into new products.

ABS is also a relatively safe material to handle when moulded as it cools down and sets very quickly.

Another benefit of the material is that it is very easy to perform post moulding operations on such as painting, sanding, gluing or otherwise manipulate.
