Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
ABS
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (a.k.a. ABS) is the largest selling engineering thermoplastic worldwide. ABS consists of a family of polybutadiene resin grafted with acrylonitrile and styrene. Property advantages from this polymer includes good processability, chemical resistance and thoughness. These properties can be optimized by adjusting the ratio of the three monomers which allows for incredible versatility to meet product requirements. While the polymer components coexist as two separate phases, ABS actually represents one of the industrially most important thermoplastic two-phase systems with an amorphous structure.
The uses and applications of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene are high-impact; medium-impact; low-impact; molding grade; and extrusion grade.

Updated Reports Examining Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

ABS from Butadiene, Acrylonitrile and Styrene (Emulsion Process)

This report presents the economics of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) polymer production in the United States using an emulsion process. In this process, butadiene is first polymerized in the presence of water, forming a latex. The polybutadiene latex is submitted to a grafting reaction with styrene and acrylonitrile monomers. The graft latex is mixed with a SAN Latex produced separately.

Details: 150 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ABS E11A target a 150 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

ABS from Polybutadiene, Acrylonitrile and Styrene (Mass Process)

This report assesses the economics of an industrial plant in the United States for the production of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) via a mass polymerization process. Initially, butadiene rubber is ground in a mill and dissolved in acrylonitrile and styrene. The mixture is submitted to a two-step copolymerization in the presence of a solvent.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ABS E12A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

ABS from Butadiene, Acrylonitrile and Styrene (Hybrid Process)

In this report, the process examined for the Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) production is a hybrid polymerization process in the United States. Initially, a solution of styrene and acrylonitrile is bulk prepolymerized with agitation. Polymerization is further conducted in suspension in water.

Details: 120 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ABS E13A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
