High stiffness and toughness

Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrole ranks among the oldest and most important styrolcopolymers and is obtained from the three components acrylnitrile, butadiene and styrole. ABS-plastics distinguish themselves through high toughness, resistance, stiffness, as well as their impact and fracture behaviour.

Acrylnitrile-Butadiene-Styrole only has a low static charge and is therefore often used in the areas of electronic and precision engineering.
