One of the most commonly used materials in injection molding is ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. ABS is a thermoplastic material known for its high impact resistance and toughness. Furthermore, it exhibits good resistance to scratching and rigidity with an excellent dimensional stability. ABS also works well in conjunction with metal coatings due to them being able to adhere strongly to ABS material. Due to it's thermoplastic properties ABS is easily plastic injection molded. ABS has a low melting temperature and is also an inexpensive material.
