Rapid Prototyping material - ABS

  • December 28,2017.

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a thermoplastic type polymer material with high strength, good toughness and easy processing.

Because of its high strength, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, it is often used in the manufacture of instrument plastic shell. ABS material usually have two kinds : yellowish and black, with certain toughness, and the density is about 1.04 ~ 1.06g / cm3. It has strong corrosion resistance to acid, alkali and salt, and can also be tolerated to some extent by organic solvent. ABS resin performance normally in 25℃~60℃ environment , and has good formability. The finished products are smooth and easy to dye and electroplate. Therefore, it can be used in household appliances, toys and other daily necessities. The common Lego block is the ABS product.

ABS material characteristics:

(1) high working pressure: at normal temperature of 20℃, the pressure is 1.0Mpa.

(2) good impact resistance: only a ductile deformation occurs during sudden attack.

(3) the chemical property of this product is stable, non-toxic and tasteless. It meets the hygienic and safety requirements of pharmaceutical, food and other industries completely.

(4) the use temperature range is large: the temperature range used is between -20℃ and +70 ℃.

(5) long service life: the product can be used indoors for 50 years, such as buried in the ground or water, the service life will be longer, and there is no obvious corrosion.

(6) light weight, save investment: ABS weight is 1/7 of steel, thus reducing the structural weight, reducing labor intensity, and reducing the consumption of raw materials, It can greatly save project investment.

ABS material easily adhesive, polished, easy to handle, painting, electroplating, laser engraving also can be.
