Prime ABS 750

Prime ABS 750 is a general purpose ABS product that has good impact strength, and good hot strength for thermoforming. It is an amorphous thermoplastic material and therefore, processes easier than some other thermoplastic materials.

Applications:

  • Applicance parts
  • Tub and shower wall surrounds
  • Interior automotive trim
  • With the addition of a weatherable cap, it may also be used in many outdoor applications

Processing

Prime ABS 750 is rather easy to thermoform due to its exceptional hot strength. It can be formed on wood, epoxy, ceramic and or aluminum tools. The forming temperature has a range of 300 - 350°F. For best results the mold temperature should be 150-190°F. In some cases it is necessary to dry the sheet before forming.

Finishing

Parts made with Prime ABS 750 may be joined with machine screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, and spring steel fasteners. Thread cutting or thread-forming screws is an economical means of securing separate joints. Formed parts may be joined with Methylene Chloride if maximum impact strength is not required. Press and snap techniques and sonic welding may also be used for the bonding of Prime ABS 750.

Colors, Textures and Capabilities

Prime ABS 750 can be color matched to meet your specific requirements. Prime ABS 750 is available in Thicknesses from .030 - .400. Textures include; Calf Grain, HC, RM, Seville, Levant I, FL/HC and Diamond Plate.
