Plastic Profiles made of Acrylnitril-Butadien-Styrol-Polymerisate – ABS

ABS, short for acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer, is one of the amorphous thermoplastic elastomers. The plastic is synthesized from the three compounds acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. Versatile ABS plastics with differentiated properties can be produced by using different relative amounts in the compounding process. ABS forms a bridge between standard plastics and engineering plastics. It is characterized by high toughness, impact strength, stiffness and machinability. In addition, this plastic is easy to bond with additives, is gamma and X-ray radiation resistant, well paintable and is scratch resistant. ABS retains its properties even at low temperatures. In addition, the plastic is very cost-effective.

Typical applications for ABS include chrome-plated trim, armrests, pipes, transport containers or ballpoint pens for, for example, household appliances, electronic devices, vehicle construction or the construction industry.

Binder + Wöhrle processes ABS primarily in the field of plastic extrusion as well as in plastic injection molding. B + W has different types in use and produces customized plastic tubes, hoses -profiles, -sheathings, ¬connections and much more in the diameter range of 0.5 – 50 mm.
