What is ABS plastic? What are its characteristics?
Nov 05, 2018

        ABS plastic is an extremely versatile thermoplastic engineering plastic that is currently the largest and most widely used polymer. ABS is a terpolymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene, and its English name is: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, Acrylonitrile (acrylonitrile), Butadiene (butadiene), Styrene (styrene), so it is called ABS.

       What is ABS plastic? What are its characteristics?

       ABS is one of the five synthetic resins. It is excellent in impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance and electrical properties. It is also easy to process, stable in size and good in surface gloss. It is easy to apply. Coloring, it can also be used for secondary processing such as surface metallization, electroplating, welding, hot pressing and bonding. It is widely used in machinery, automotive, electronic appliances, instrumentation, textile and construction industries. Thermoplastic engineering plastics.

        ABS material, also known as ABS engineering plastic, is opaque and ivory-colored pellets, and its products can be colorful and have high gloss. The relative density of ABS is about 1.05, and the water absorption rate is low. ABS combines well with other materials and is easy to surface print, coat and coat. ABS has an oxygen index of 18 to 20 and is a flammable polymer. The flame is yellow, has black smoke, and emits a special odor.

        ABS resin is a yellowish solid with a certain toughness and a density of about 1.04~1.06g/cm3. It has strong resistance to acid, alkali and salt, and can also tolerate organic solvent dissolution to some extent. ABS resin can be normal in the environment of -25 ° C ~ 60 ° C, and has good formability, the surface of the processed product is smooth, easy to dye and electroplating. Therefore, it can be used for household appliances, toys and other daily necessities, and common Lego bricks are ABS products. ABS resin can be blended with a variety of resins into a blend, such as PC / ABS, ABS / PVC, PA / ABS, PBT / ABS, etc., to create new properties and new applications, such as: ABS resin and PMMA mixed, A transparent ABS resin was produced.

        ABS resin is currently the largest and most widely used polymer. It combines the properties of PS, SAN and BS organically, and has excellent mechanical properties of toughness, hardness and rigid phase balance. ABS is a terpolymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene, A represents acrylonitrile, B represents butadiene, and S represents styrene.

        ABS has good electrical insulation and is almost independent of temperature, humidity and frequency. It can be used in most environments. It is also a thermoplastic with excellent processing properties. It can be processed by general processing methods and widely used in automobiles. In the field of electronic appliances and building materials, mobile phone casings are also made of ABS engineering plastics.
