ABS is a terpolymer made by polymerizing styrene and acrylonitrile in the presence of polybutadiene. The proportions can vary from 15 to 35% acrylonitrile, 5 to 30% butadiene and 40 to 60% styrene. The result is a long chain of polybutadiene criss-crossed with shorter chains of poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile). The nitrile groups from neighboring chains, being polar, attract each other and bind the chains together, making ABS stronger than pure polystyrene. The styrene gives the plastic a shiny, impervious surface. The polybutadiene, a rubbery substance, provides toughness even at low temperatures. For the majority of applications, ABS can be used between ?20 and 80 °C (?4 and 176 °F) as its mechanical properties vary with temperature. The properties are created by rubber toughening, where fine particles of elastomer are distributed throughout the rigid matrix.
The global acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene market is anticipated to be driven by growing demand from automobile and consumer goods (appliances) industries. Rapid economic growth and increasing purchasing power parity in emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil is expected to drive the demand for consumer appliances and automobiles over the period of 2017 to 2023.
Technological advancements in resins, high-durability, and temperature resistant material are the driving factors that enable product penetration. The penetration of innovative products with latest manufacturing techniques including halogen FR technology will enhance acrylonitrile butadiene styrene market size.
