Suppliers of highest quality rigid plastic sheet
and rollstock for the Australasian market
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) | Flight's ABS is available in both roll and sheet form. ABS provides an optimum balance of tensile impact strengths. It features ease of forming, excellent toughness and rigidity and is particularly good for deep draw vacuum forming for products likely to receive abuse in the form of knocks, scuffing and scratching. ABS also has good chemical resistance. Flight offers a variety of grades of ABS including specialist high heat and flame retardant resins as well as different gloss finishes.

Flight also extrudes ASA which has similar properties to ABS but is specifically designed for outdoor applications.
