ABS edges

The edge mainly used on the current market is that of ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), a common thermoplastic polymer also used in the world to create objects of various sizes and functionality, 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, capable of maintaining a consistent color and shape.
