Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) Resins

Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) Resins

Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) resins are plastics that can be compounded with various additives to create special properties, making them versatile and attractive for various end-use applications. Both are produced in different grades with a significant variety of properties, so plastic processors can choose a specific grade for a specific application. In ABS, there is a commodity end of the market (basic, general-purpose material) as well as a specialist end (blends with polycarbonate or methyl methacrylate, for instance) that offers high-performance grades with special characteristics. Many ABS/SAN producers (in the specialist areas) provide technical sales support because of the nature of the products.

ABS is a high-performance plastic widely used in the electronics industry, automobile industry, pipes and fittings, domestic appliances (refrigerator door panels, coffee machines, blenders, irons, vacuum cleaners, etc.), telecommunications apparatuses (mobile and fixed phones), toys, electronic games, business machines (computers, scanners, printers, photocopiers, fax machines, etc.), photographic equipment, and furniture.
