King Plastic—King KPC ABS Ideal for Machining Applications.
The advantage of King KPC ABS is that this material combines strength and rigidity of the acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of the polybutadiene rubber. A variety of modifications have been made to improve impact resistance, toughness and heat resistance. The impact resistance does not fall off rapidly at low temperatures and stability under load is excellent with limited loads.
KPC ABS is considered superior for its hardness, gloss, toughness, and electrical insulation properties. KPC ABS is easily machinable and is available in smaller sizes. It is extensively used in prototyping, modeling industry, semiconductor, and other mechanical applications.
They also offer King KPC ABS Black in a FR (flame retardant) formulation for use in applications such as transformer housings, switches, shelving, air conditioner components, and a white food grade formulation which is an outstanding material for professional food services. All King KPC ABS products are FDA approved with the exception of ABS-FR. Standard sheet sizes are 24” x 48”, and 48” x 96” in gauges 1/16” – 4”.
King KPC ABS is manufactured in their state-of-the-art compression molding system located in North Port, Florida. For details, visit www.kingplastic.com.Download Newsletter
