ABS is easy to machine and fabricate, making it the ideal material for structural applications when impact resistance, strength, and stiffness are required. It is widely used for prototypes since it has excellent dimensional stability and is easy to paint and glue. Natural (beige) ABS and black ABS are FDA compliant for use in food processing applications.
