Why ABS Plastic is Widely Used in Various Industries..

posted on Sep 4, 2019

This article discusses why ABS or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is one of the most favored choices of plastic for numerous engineering projects and industrial applications. Before we dive into the main gist of this article, let us first understand how ABS is made.
How is ABS Made?

ABS is a thermoplastic that is produced by fusing polybutadiene rubber with styrene polymers, and acrylonitrile, it’s most commonly created through a process called emulsion. The styrene gives ABS a shiny look with an impervious surface and the polybutadiene provides a superior level of durability that ABS is so famously known for.

Industries Where ABS is Preferred:

Not only is ABS reliable and tough, but it is also affordable. Listed below are some industries where ABS is widely used.

Oil & Gas
Defense
3D Printing
Aerospace
Medicine & Pharmaceutical
Food Handling
Material Conveying
Why is ABS Plastic Popular in Many Industries?

ABS possess several attributes, making it an ideal plastic for several industrial applications. Let us go through some noteworthy properties to gain a better understanding of what makes it so popular.

The most important property as mentioned earlier is its toughness and impact resistance. But what makes ABS even more interesting is that its impact resistance can be augmented through a series of modifications. By increasing the proportions of polybutadiene in relation to styrene, we can improve its toughness and resistance to heat.
ABS is a thermoplastic material, which means it can be easily recycled. This proves to be a massive advantage for many industries because new products can be formed by recycling other ABS plastics.
ABS plastics commonly cater to mechanical purposes. However, they also possess electrical insulation properties that are constant over a broad range of frequencies. These properties remain unaffected by harsh temperatures and atmospheric humidity, making it an ideal choice for various industries.
They are resistant to aqueous acids, alkalis, concentrated phosphoric and hydrochloric acids, alcohols and oils.
ABS is an incredible material when it comes to prototyping and 3D printing. They offer excellent design flexibility. What’s more, ABS is dimensionally accurate. This means 3D printed products can be produced with immense accuracy and precision.
