General information about ABS
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a thermal and chemical polymer, which is also known by the abbreviation ABS. This product is a type of thermoplastic polymer that is obtained from the combination of three main chemicals: styrene, acrylonitrile, and butadiene. Acrylonitrile is a synthetic monomer produced from propylene and ammonia. This product contributes to the chemical resistance of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene and the thermal stability of this product. Butadiene is obtained as a byproduct of ethylene production from steam crackers. This chemical can increase the resistance of the final product. Styrene is also a kind of chemical substance that provides the rigidity of the final product and its processing capability.
Usage of ABS
ABS is used in various fields due to its unique properties. In the home appliance industry, this product is used to produce the body of a vacuum cleaner, the internal parts of refrigerators, the frame of TVs, and the body of other electronic devices. In the electronic industry, this product can be used to produce the body of a mobile phone and other electronic parts. In the medical industry, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is widely used for the production of various types of medical instruments. ABS can also be used in the automotive industry to produce dashboards, bumpers, door handles, belt components, etc. In general, this product is known as one of the most widely used products in various industries.

Technical data sheet & chemical Formula
ABS is known by the chemical formula (C8H8·C4H6·C3H3N)n. This product is usually produced in a solid form with a natural milky color, but it can also be produced in a colored form by adding various pigments. Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is known as a resin resistant to chemical factors, but it does not have much resistance to polar solvents. This product can easily be used as an injection, molded, or extruded plastic. The low melting point of this product has also made Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene a widely used product in the 3D printing industry.
ABS have high hardness and good insulation properties and good welding ability. In addition, this product is known as a very resistant product against impact, low temperature, and pressure. In general, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene has amazing mechanical properties and its nature is hard. This is the reason why pressure shock and other environmental factors cannot easily affect the quality of this product. Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is also resistant to dilute acid and alkaline substances, and these products cannot affect the main nature of this product.
|Boiling point||145.2 °C|
|Solubility in water||Insoluble in water|
How is packing of ABS?
ABS is usually marketed in granular form. The granules of this product are sold in 25 kg plastic or paper bags. Of course, for wider uses, you can get this product in larger packages and use them in your desired field. This product is not such a sensitive product, that’s why the process of buying and using it is relatively easy.
Safety & warning & transportation
ABS is not as resistant to weathering as it should be. For this reason, the storage conditions of this product should be relatively special. In addition, this product does not show much resistance to solvents such as ketones and aromatic esters. If you work in a laboratory environment, do not place Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene in the vicinity of these solvents. In general, to maintain product quality, it is better to store this product in a place away from dangerous factors such as fire, moisture, and pollution. To move this product, try not to tear the product packaging.
