ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
The Benefits of ABS Plastic in Injection Molding
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic is a thermoplastic polymer often used in the injection molding process. It is one of the most common plastics used in OEM part production and 3D print manufacturing.
The chemical properties of ABS plastic give it a relatively low melting point and a low glass transition temperature, meaning it can be easily melted down and molded into different shapes during the injection molding process. ABS can be repeatedly melted down and reshaped without significant chemical degradation, making the plastic recyclable.
ABS is relatively safe to handle as it cools down and hardens. This makes it one of the easiest plastics to handle, machine, paint, sand, glue, or otherwise manipulate. Other benefits of products made of ABS plastic include:
- Strong impact resistance
- Strong heat resistance
- High tensile strength
- Shock absorbance
- Scratch resistance
- Low cost
