ABS Resin ABS Resin

Looking for ABS Resins?

ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a type of plastic that is being used most commonly in injection molding applications. As suggested by its name, it is a copolymer of Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, and Styrene. It is an amorphous polymer and an opaque thermoplastic material. Available at medium cost, this material possesses medium strength. The material is known for its high melting point, and can be heated to their melting point, cooled, and heated again without causing any deformation or degradation. At Mid Continent Plastics, we work hard to provide you best quality ABS resins at most competitive prices in the US.

Beneficial Features & Properties of ABS Resins

The many beneficial features and properties of this material make them preferred in a wide range of applications. The following are some striking features of ABS resins:

  • As said earlier, the material has a medium strength.
  • It has the rigidity and strength of acrylonitrile and styrene polymers. The polybutadiene rubber makes it tough.
  • The exceptional chemical resistance of these resins makes them highly resistant to chemical degradation.
  • The resin has strong chemical bonds, which help improve the level of thermal stability of the material. This makes them capable of handling high temperatures.
  • Along with a good thermal stability, these resins also have an excellent dimensional stability.
  • The ABS resins have a good creep resistance, which makes them strong and prevents them from deformation even under high mechanical stress.
  • The properties of this material make it capable of being electroplated.
  • It has an excellent formability, which allows you to form different shapes of it easily.
  • The resin is known for its excellent impact strength.
  • The material has a good level of stiffness and a high tensile strength.
  • This material displays an amazing performance at low and high temperatures
  • It shows a good resistance to a variety of plasticizers.
  • The excellent ductility of this resin make allow them to be stretched to form a wire, and hence used in several applications.
  • The resin is known for its excellent impact strength.
