ABS combines the strength and rigidity of acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of polybutadiene rubber. While the cost of producing ABS is roughly twice the cost of producing polystyrene, it is considered superior for its hardness, gloss, toughness, and electrical insulation properties.
ABS Possible Uses
Drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipe systems, musical instruments (recorders, plastic clarinets, and piano movements), golf club heads (due to its good shock absorbance), automotive trim components, automotive bumper bars, medical devices for blood access, enclosures for electrical and electronic assemblies, protective headgear, whitewater canoes, buffer edging for furniture and joinery panels, luggage and protective carrying cases, small kitchen appliances, and toys, such as Lego bricks.
ABS Probable Features
Flame Retardant, High Heat Resistance, High Impact Resistance, Good Impact Resistance, High Flow, General Purpose, Good Flow, High Gloss, Good Dimensional Stability.
ABS Possible Disadvantages
Limited weathering resistance, moderate heat, moisture and chemical resistance, relatively high cost, flammable with high smoke generation.
