ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a very popular material thanks to its low cost and good mechanical properties. ABS is known for its toughness and impact resistance, it has a higher glass transition temperature, which means the material can withstand much higher temperatures before it begins to deform. This makes ABS a great choice for outdoor or high temperature applications.
