You Can Partner with Star and their 35 years’ experience in ABS

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, known as ABS, is a prominent engineering terpolymer that Star Plastics has worked with for over 35 years. Perhaps its most famous application is in LEGO bricks, but ABS has qualities far beyond that.

  • Impact resistance
  • Toughness and rigidity when compared to other common polymers
  • Heat resistance
  • Electrical properties
  • Light weight

ABS can also be modified to improve impact resistance, toughness and heat resistance.

ABS is commonly found in applications such as:

  • Binoculars and monoculars
  • Instruments such as recorders, oboes and clarinets
  • Golf club heads
  • Motorcycle face shields and windscreens
  • Automotive trim components
  • Inhalers and nebulizers
