With many years of experience in machining/fabricating with plastics, we have the knowledge to both improve on existing parts and offer advice for research and development. We can take your sketch and make it a reality. When specializing in plastic only; there will be no cross contamination risk FDA this material offers the food industry products that are chemical resistant, with great wear properties.
ABS plastics is a common thermoplastic polymer, Lego bricks are made from ABS a strong material most adults and children enjoy.
Royal Custom Plastics uses ABS to fabricate and/or machine totes, guards, catch pans, electrical connection boxes and shrouds. ABS is also a very highly used material in vacuum formed parts.
ABS can be easily modified by the addition of additives and by variation of the ratio of the three monomers Acrylonitrile, Butadiene and Styrene: grades available include high and medium impact, high heat resistance, and electroplatable. The high heat resistance grade can withstand temperatures up to 220-240 °F at 264 psi and 230-245 °F at 66 psi.
ABS is an easily machined, tough, low cost rigid thermoplastic material with high impact strength. It is ideal for drilling, sawing, milling, die cutting, shearing and turning. It has excellent abrasion resistance and electrical properties.
ABS is rated HB
