Cutting (turning, milling, drilling, sawing): these plastics have the best cutting properties. Traditional metalworking – or in certain cases, woodworking tools – carbon steel, rapid steel, hard metal, diamond can be used in sharp design. Cooling is recommended, which allows high cutting rates e. g. v = 200–500 m/min for turning, v = 200–400 m/min for milling, v = 50–100 m/min for drilling.
Adhesive bonding and welding: feasible.
Good electroplating properties.
Basic version, in rod and board design. Good cutting, electroplating, adhesive bonding, thermoforming properties. Durable for use between -40° to + 80°C. For a brief period, it can tolerate temperatures around 100°C.
Coloured version of natural ABS having regenerated materials as well.
