Slide background

Acrylic-capped ABS is a co-extruded material that combines the normal ABS characteristics of impact strength and durability with those of PMMA including scratch resistance, aesthetics, and, if necessary, weather ability. Acrylic-capped ABS is easily thermoformed and machined, and is predominantly used in the manufacture of bathroom ware.
