What is ABS plastic and their wide application in life
What is ABS plastic? Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS for short) is a material made up of 3 types of molecules: Acrylonitrile, Butadiene and Styrene, whose formula is (C8H8 · C4H6 · C3H3N) n.
Characteristics of ABS plastic
ABS is a tough but non-brittle plastic that has stability under very good loads.
Characteristics of ABS plastic are impact resistance and toughness, impact resistance does not decrease quickly at low temperatures. ABS with heat equivalent or better than Acetal, PC … at room temperature.
When not impacted, damage occurs due to bending more brittle. Physical properties have little effect on humidity but only affect the dimensional stability of ABS.
Application of ABS plastic in life
With unlimited injection molding capabilities, ABS plastic is used in electrical insulation products, in electronic engineering and communications.
Because of good impact resistance, ABS is used to produce golf club heads, parts of cars, motorcycles, boats …
With good toughness, ABS is also used in the packaging industry, especially for food, injection molding products, containers and membranes, helmets, toys …
For ABS plastic beads with a diameter of less than 1 micrometer, it is used as a dye in some tattoo inks, making the ink tattoo brighter and sharper.
Norman bookshelf / door system with ABS waterproof plastic material is perfect for bathroom and kitchen space. With unique properties different from normal toxic plastics, ABS is considered a green technology because it can be recycled.
