ABS polymer|Acrylonitryle Butadiene Styrene

Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS

 Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS is produced in 50 grades, which include regular grades, heat resistant, flame retardant and elastic screeds. Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS screeds are easily molded with injection, extrusion and winding methods, and the final product is stable in terms of structure. It has a glass surface. Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS granules have the ability to re-shape.

ABS is a copolymer consisting of three monomers:

1) Acrylonitrile: Increases resistance to heat and chemical reactions

2) Butadiene: Compressive strength and rigidity strengthening

3) Styrene: Better ductility and more

Variations in the relative proportions of each monomer can result in drastic changes in the physical properties of Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS. The proportions of individual monomers may vary from 15% to 35% acrylonitrile, 40% to 60% styrene, and 5% to 30% butadiene, resulting in a variety of plastic products suitable for different applications. In addition, blends with other materials such as polyvinylchloride (PVC) and other polycarbonates and polysulfonates have been developed.

Acrylonitrile butadiene Styrene, ABS usage

Properties of particular importance are toughness and impact resistance, dimensional stability, good heat distortion resistance and good low-temperature properties. The light weight and ability of ABS to be injection molded has made it useful in creating products needing complex and precise shapes, such as musical instruments, automotive components, medical devices, protective headgear, golf club heads, and canoes.
