Product Description
Lustran® ABS 248 resin is a high-gloss, medium-impact grade of ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). This general-purpose injection molding grade offers a good balance of physical properties. It also complies with FDA regulation 21 CFR 181.32 for repeated-use food contact applications in certain colors. The resin is available in natural, black and custom colors.

Lustran ABS 248 is used in applications requiring rigidity and intermediate abuse resistance. Typical applications include housings for small appliances and toys. As with any product, use of Lustran ABS 248 resin in a given application must be tested (including but not limited to field testing) in advance by the user to determine suitability.
