Our 2,0 x 1,0 meter standard white color ABS plates are similar in color RAL9016 (traffic white) and are available in thicknesses from 1mm to 10mm. To ensure that the cut edges and the surfaces have got the same white color, the panels are colored completely white. The smooth surface is provided on one side with a protective film to avoid damage caused by scratching, which could otherwise occur before or during processing.
ABS plastic (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene-co-polymer) has a comparatively high impact strength. Therefore, our white standard ABS plates are excellently suited for use as stable underlays and housings that need to withstand regular bumps and knocks. Thanks to its excellent electrical properties, ABS plastic is also widely used as an isolation enclosure for consumer electronics (for example TVs, notebooks, receivers, hi-fi equipment, etc.).
The operating temperature of our white ABS plates is between -10°C and + 90°C. At temperatures above the operating temperature ABS begins to soften, so that the white ABS can be thermally deformed even at a low softening temperature of 102°C. For this reason, deep-drawing with ABS is a common method in the industrial mass production of molded plastic parts such as housings and control boxes for the electronics industry or covers and panels in the automotive industry.
As an alternative to our 2,0 x 1,0 meter white ABS standard sheets, you can purchase our white ABS sheets directly in the cut . Simply enter the required dimensions in millimeters into the input fields and select the thickness. The cutting takes place with millimeter precision on one of our computer-controlled saws for the horizontal cutting to your specifications.
Our white 2,0 x 1,0 meter standard format ABS plates are rarely used without further processing, but can be machined to the desired format using any known machining method such as sawing, milling or grinding, without any special requirements tools or machines needed. Simple tools for woodworking are enough. The same applies for drilling holes or cutting threads in our ABS panels. In addition, ABS can be easily lasered to achieve smooth polishing cut edges, or to create custom shapes. Punching with appropriate punching forms is a common practice to bring plastic parts made of ABS in the desired shape, but is mainly used in industrial manufacturing application.
Our ABS panels can not be permanently used outdoors because they are not UV and weather-resistant. With a suitable treatment of the surfaces by a UV-protective film or by coating with a paint suitable for plastics, the surfaces can be protected against UV-radiation.
Our white ABS sheets are excellent for gluing. For this purpose, we offer in our online shop the Cold welding adhesive ABSprofi of our own brand S-Polybond, which was developed by us and was specially developed for the bonding of ABS plastics together or many other plastics. Welding with an ABS welding wire in white is also a joining method that is often used with ABS plastic to ensure a lasting and secure connection.
NOTE:Our standard white ABS panels have a protective film on one side to protect the surface from scratching. The protective film is not thermoformable and should therefore be removed before thermoforming.
