Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
Extruded Grade • Natural Color




Ensinger TECARAN ABS is a terpolymer and an amorphous resin. It is manufactured by combining three different compounds. The three that make up TECARAN ABS are acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. TECARAN ABS occupies the unique position of being a bridge between the commodity and other higher performance engineering thermoplastics. Its performance is characterized by toughness and impact strength even at low temperatures, good stiffness and machinability.

  • Cost Effective
  • Good Toughness At Low Temperatures
  • Easily Machinable
  • Natural Is Made From Resin That Is FDA, USDA, 3A Dairy Compliant
  • Available In Natural or Black
  • Meets ASTM D4673-02 ABS220B44500
  • Easily Bonded
