Material: ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE:



GE PLASTICS CYCOLAC MG47 - ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE (ABS)
CYCOLAC� MG47 - ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE (ABS)
GE Plastics Cycolac MG47 - Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
Cycolac� acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) is a resin that provides a favorable balance of engineering properties. ABS has good impact strength, dimensional stability at elevated temperatures, and excellent appearance. ABS is a lightweight plastic with toughness and rigidity. Some disadvantages are poor solvent resistance, low dielectric strength, and service temperatures. Cycolac� ABS is light cream color in its natural state.
 
APPLICATIONS
Cycolac� ABS can be used in automotive, housewares, small appliance housings, personal care, medical devices, electronics, telecommunications, construction products, and toys.
