ABS edges

The edge mainly used on the current market is in ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), a common thermoplastic polymer used worldwide to create objects of various sizes and functions, characterized by its excellent resistance to thermo-chemical variations, impact and hardness.

Its excellent mechanical properties make ABS an extremely flexible and easily workable product that is always capable of maintaining a homogeneous color and shape
