ABS (AcryButadieneStyrene)

ABS is an amorphous thermoplastic that has high impact strength even at low temperatures.

The moisture absorption of ABS is low. Special types of this material are suitable for galvanization.

Properties

The properties of ABS are:
  • Bad UV stability
  • Stress cracking sensitive
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Good resistance to dilute acids and alkalis
  • Good oil resistance
  • Good scratch resistance
  • High surface hardness
  • Good impact resistance
  • High impact strength even at low temperatures
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Bad weather resistance
  • Excellent galvanizability

Applications

ABS can be used in the following areas:
  • Components with high impact strength at low temperatures
  • Pump and valve parts
  • Gaskets
  • Components in electroplating
  • Chemical tank and apparatus construction
  • Air conditioning and ventilation technology
