ABS is a copolymer composed of three components: (Acrylonitrile, Butadiene, Styrene). The physical result is a rigid thermoplastic material with good impact, and endowed with flexibility, high mechanical impact resistance and an excellent appearance for aesthetic applications.
There are multiple applications and industries for this product. This is mainly because the thermoplastic synthetic resin can take on various colors and shapes via thermal molding and the addition of pigments, thus creating vivid, saturated colorations.
There are two types of ABS production processes:
The method in which all components are processed in the reactor and then granulated. In this model, the ABS will have low gloss, which is why it is widely used for car interior parts. It can be dyed in the transformer using color masterbatches or Salt & Pepper (S&P) blend.
Processing in Emulsion
Developed from batches, i.e., acrylonitrile is initially copolymerized with styrene, producing what is known in the market as SAN. This result is extruded together with polybutadiene (polymerized butadiene), forming ABS. Here, the final product is very bright, which makes it popular for the home appliance industry.
In addition to providing the best ABS available in the world, we work with color processing and additives.
Finally, we have a product that, when compared to alternatives, provides excellent cost-effectiveness.
