ABS is a copolymerization of styrene, acrylonitrile, and butadiene latex. Its heat and solvent resistance properties are better than HIPS and it has gloss characteristics. Because acrylonitrile has stronger nitrile polarity, it can enhance the interaction of the PS in the molecular chain. Therefore, its impact strength, tensile strength, and plastic surface hardness are better compared to those of HIPS.
Generally, the higher the content proportion of acrylonitrile, the better the heat resistance, rigidity, and solvent resistance properties; but the fluidity is worse and the plastic contains a yellow colour. During injection mode, it has very good mechanical property and dimensional stability. Based on these advantages, the ABS resin has become an excellent engineering plastic.
Our ABS-E, based on the PA-747R from CHIMEI, is easier to print, less prone to warping and cracking and with improved impact resistance and material stress. Thanks to the experience gained in the creation of materials and the close collaboration with manufacturers of 3D printers and makers around the world, CHIMEY has achieved an ABS capable to withstand higher speeds and better adhesion accuracy between layers.
