Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene material, commonly referred to as ABS plastic, is manufactured by Insol  in standard stock shapes for machining, and is extruded in ABS plastic sheet and rod. ABS polymer is an amorphous terpolymer which is manufactured by combining three different compounds. The three that make up ABS Plastic are acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene plastic.
