Injection Molding Resin: ABS
ABS, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, is a common thermoplastic polymer used in injection molding. Its styrene content imparts a shiny, impervious surface, while the polybutadiene it contains provides excellent toughness, even at low temperatures. ABS’ chemical structure can be modified to improve certain characteristics based on the application at hand.
Properties of ABS Injection Molding Resin
- Very high impact strength and toughness
- Excellent tensile strength and stiffness
- Good machinability
- Very good dimensional stability
- High stability under load
- Very good heat resistance
- Very good resistance to most oils, acids, and alkalis
- Good dielectric properties
- Maintains characteristics and performance in extreme temperatures
- Excellent ductility
- Creep resistant
- Easily alloyed with other polymers
