Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
- An economic mass plastic frequently used in the electrical industry and in automotive engineering: the plastic of choice for the production of electronic parts, musical instruments, domestic appliances, toys and plastic parts for vehicles
- While resembling polystyrene, it has a better chemical resistance, is more resistant to atmospheric influences and has a higher thermal deformation resistance
- Consists of three monomers that can be mixed in different ratios to directly influence the properties of the plastic according to your needs and requirements
ABS offers high-levels of chemical and thermal deformation resistance, making it easy to glue, weld and machine. It can be used across a broad temperature range from -40 °C (-40 °F) to +80 °C (176 °F), melting at 240 °C (464 °F) and only disintegrating at even higher temperatures.
Perfect for coating and galvanizing with metals
ABS is well-suited to coating and galvanizing with metals, enabling the straightforward production of an ABS plastic part with a chrome-plated surface. With an appearance that can be adapted to suit the respective application, ABS is used in sophisticated application fields, including the production of electronic parts, musical instruments, domestic appliances, toys and plastic parts for vehicles.
Fully adaptable ratios
Our high-end extrusion method enables the production of high-quality profiles for your every need. Containing acrylonitrile (15 % to 35 %), butadiene (5 % to 30 %) and styrene (40 % to 60 %) in differing ratios, the properties of ABS can be altered according to your individual requirements.
