TECARAN ABS

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
  • Available In Natural or Black
  • ASTM D 4673 ABS0220B43630
  • Easily Bonded

The applications for TECARAN™ ABS range from Aerospace and automotive parts and housings, to parts for agricultural lawn and garden equipment and components for medical and business equipment, as well as many others.
