ABS in full title is Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a light proof thermoplastic polymer. “Thermoplastic” is regarding to the way how plastic material responds to heat. Thermoplastics become liquid at a certain temperature. In the case of ABS, it’s 221 degrees Fahrenheit. There is no serious degradation while they after heated and cooling. Thermoplastics like ABS can be easily recycled due to the property of liquidation. Comparatively, the first heating causes thermoset materials to be stable (similar to a 2-part epoxy), resulting in a chemical change that cannot be reversed. By heating a thermoset plastic to a high temperature in second time, it would simply burn.
ABS is resisted to corrosive chemicals and/or physical impacts strongly. It is easy to be machined and has a low melting temperature which is good for manufacturing processes or 3D printing on an FDM machine. ABS is also relatively inexpensive, it’s somewhere between Polypropylene (“PP”) and Polycarbonate (“PC”). These characteristics lead to ABS being used in a large number of applications across a wide range of industries. Specifically, we have been used ABS in machine covers or housing, car parts, trays.
