Prime ABS 750
Is a general purpose ABS product that has good impact strength, and good hot strength for thermo forming. It is an amorphous thermoplastic material and therefore, processes easier than some other thermoplastic materials.

Prime ABS 750 may be used for interior applications such as appliance parts, tub and shower wall surrounds, and interior automotive trim. With the addition of a weatherable cap it may also be used in many outdoor applications.

Parts made with Prime ABS 750 may be joined with machine screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, and spring steel fasteners. Thread cutting or thread-forming screws is an economical means of securing separate joints. Formed parts may be joined with Methylene Chloride if maximum impact strength is not required. Press and snap techniques and sonic welding may also be used for the bonding of Prime ABS 750.

End uses of ABS include:
Tub/shower surrounds
Pickup truck caps
Boat accessories automotive trim parts
Computer housings.

Consumer Review
Usable but not perfect
I ordered the 0.125″ thickness 12″ x 12″ sheet. It is actually 0.115″ thick, and 11.9″ x 11.9″. There are two minor defects on the texturing. They look like manufacturing defects but could also have been caused by rubbing or scratching due to the textured side not being protected.

Nevertheless, it’s still suitable for my application (automotive switch panel).
