Expanded ABS, a terpolymer of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, is discussed in this paper. The physical properties of this material are described, particularly with respect to furniture production. The expansion casting process is described, casting recommendations presented, and equipment detailed. Design and finishing are explored in some detail, and comparisons with wood and other furniture materials are offered.
