ABS plastic is an extremely versatile thermoplastic engineering plastic. It is currently the largest polymer and the most widely used polymer. ABS is a terpolymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. 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 has excellent impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and electrical properties. It also has the characteristics of easy processing, stable product size, and good surface gloss. It is easy to paint, Coloring can also be used for secondary processing such as metal spraying on the surface, electroplating, welding, hot pressing and bonding. It is widely used in industrial fields such as machinery, automobiles, electronic appliances, instruments, textiles and construction. It is a very versatile Thermoplastic engineering plastics.

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

ABS resin is a yellowish solid, has a certain toughness, and the density is about 1.04 ~ 1.06g / cm3. It has strong corrosion resistance to acids, alkalis and salts, and can also tolerate the dissolution of organic solvents to a certain extent. ABS resin can perform normally in the environment of -25 ℃ ~ 60 ℃, and has good moldability. The surface of the processed product is smooth and easy to dye and electroplating. Therefore, it can be used for household appliances, toys and other daily necessities. The common Lego bricks are ABS products. ABS resin can be blended with a variety of resins to form a blend, such as PC / ABS, ABS / PVC, PA / ABS, PBT / ABS, etc., resulting in new properties and new applications, such as: mixing ABS resin and PMMA Manufactured transparent ABS resin.

ABS resin is currently the largest and most widely used polymer. It unifies the various properties of PS, SAN, and BS organically, and has excellent mechanical properties of toughness, rigidity, 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 hardly affected by temperature, humidity and frequency. It can be used in most environments. At the same time, it is a thermoplastic with excellent processing properties. It can be processed by general processing methods and is widely used in automobiles. , Electronic appliances and building materials, mobile phone shells are also made of ABS engineering plastics.
