Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene

ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)  is amorphous material that shows excellent impact and strength resistance, chemical resistance, high gloss, processability. Additionally ABS has low water absorption, dimensional stability and is resistant to temperature changes.
ABS with no additives has low resistance to UV radiation*. Good resistance to lyes, diluted acids, hydrochloric acids, oils and fats. It is not resistant to acids, esters and ketone,. Max. suggested  working temperature for standard, not modified types is 70ºC.
Wild range of modified ABS has following properties:
– high impact resistance
– high heat resistance
– high gloss
– flammability class
– metal plating
– transparency
these properties allows usage of ABS for variety of application e.g. for white goods production, in automotive, in furniture industry, electronic and electric industry.

* for application that’s requires UV stabilisation it is recommended to use ASA resin.
