Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene(ABS)
ABS appearance is as opaque ivory pellets, non-toxic, odorless, low water absorption, its products can be a variety of colors, and has a 90% high gloss.
ABS is a very good overall performance of the resin, in comparison with a wide range of temperatures, high impact strength and surface hardness, good dimensional stability.
Thermal / mechanical properties:
ABS has excellent mechanical properties, excellent impact strength, can be used at very low temperatures. ABS products are destroyed, it can only be tensile failure without impact damage.
ABS, excellent wear resistance, good dimensional stability, but also has oil resistance, can be used for moderate load and speed of the bearing. ABS flexural strength and compressive strength is less plastic. The mechanical properties of ABS influenced by temperature.
ABS polymers are amorphous, no clear melting point; High melt viscosity, poor fluidity; Very good thermal stability, weather resistance is poor, ultraviolet can change color; The temperature and shear rate are more sensitive.
ABS resin is mainly used in the automotive, communications equipment, computers, household goods, sporting goods, etc.
