Glossary

ABS

An impact-resistant engineering thermoplastic & amorphous polymer.
ABS is a strong & durable, chemically resistant resin but gets easily attacked by polar solvents. It has good weldability, high dimension stability, good abrasion and strain resistance and very good surface gloss. It can be processed on most standard machinery. It can be injection-moulded, blow-moulded, or extruded. It has a low melting temperature making it suitable for processing by 3D printing.

Bisphenol-A (BPA)

An organic synthetic compound from polycarbonates and epoxy resins. BPA-based plastic is clear, tough, lightweight and flame resistant. Major areas of application include electronics construction materials, automotive, data storage. It is one of the highest volume organic chemicals produced worldwide.
