What is ABS?

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a high impact, tough material available with a range of options and properties. Whether required in flame resistant, coloured or textured there is usually an option in an opaque ABS.


  • Flame resistant grades
  • Textured options
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Scratch resistant
  • Good for machining, forming, welding and bending

Why machined ABS?

Although IPF also offer ABS as a 3D printed material, some jobs require higher precision, surface finish or strength than its 3D printing counterpart. Machined and fabricated items from ABS are common place at IPF running through various processes including machining, forming, welding, bending and post-processing.
