Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)





Briefly called IBS, is a type of thermoplastic polymer obtained from the polymerization of styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadine and has an amorphous structure. IBS is one of the most widely used plastic raw materials due to its reasonable price as well as its balanced mechanical, thermal and chemical properties. It is mainly used in oil pipelines, pipes, home appliances, furniture, car accessories, telephones and electrical equipment. ABS was first introduced in the early 1950s. ABS polymers have been around ever since, and are now produced annually after polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC and polystyrene. Although styrene acrylonitrile copolymers are high enough for many applications, they are not suitable for other uses, so a range of materials commonly referred to as ABS polymers were first introduced in the early 1950s. ABS polymers have been around ever since, and are now produced annually after polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC and polystyrene.
