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.
