About Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. 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.
Chemical Formula. (C8H8.C4H6.C3H3N)n
Commercial Grades. High-impact; medium-impact; low-impact; molding grade; extrusion grade
Uses. Main applications of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene resins and blends are in the automotive industry and the electronics sector. ABS is also used in the construction industry (e.g. domestic appliances, pipes, fittings), recreational goods (e.g. boats, mobile homes) and in polymer blends (e.g. polycarbonate, polyvinyl chloride) for injection moulding applications.
- Substrate of polybutadiene + acrylonitrile + styrene (emulsion polymerization)
- Substrate of polybutadiene + acrylonitrile + styrene (mass polymerization)
