Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
Learn how ABS, an impact-resistant and tough material, can be applied to your project.All Resin Families
ABS is a terpolymer made from polymerizing Styrene Monomer – Acrylonitrile and Butadiene. The proportions of Acrylonitrile and Butadiene vary by grade, allowing unique modifications to enhance impact, toughness, heat resistance, and gloss levels. Styrene provides the ABS with an impervious surface, the Butadiene provides for toughness and impact, and the Acrylonitrile provides the binding chains that make ABS a mechanically strong product.
