- Prototype Modeling
- Short Run Production Parts
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 available in smaller sizes. It is extensively used in prototyping, the modeling industry and other mechanical applications.
A growing outlet for ABS is the electronics industry where it is used in business machines, computers, radios, monitors and cell and smart phones. An important market is the automobile sector where it is used in instrument panels, consoles, radiator grills, headlight housings and interior trim parts with growing use in recreational vehicles.
Other applications include domestic appliances such as refrigerators and sewing machines; pipes, fittings and other products used in the construction industry; and recreational goods such as boats and mobile homes.
King KPC ABS is manufactured in our state-of-the-art compression molding system located in North Port, Florida.
