ABS / PVC Flame-Retardant Grades, Molding and Extrusion ABS is a subcategory of Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene. The additative is added during the manufacturing process. Its elastic modulus ranges from 325 to 380 MPa. Its flexural modulus ranges from 320 to 400 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 5800 to 6500 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 7900 to 10000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 3 to 18 J/cm. Its hardness ranges from 100 to 106 Rockwell R. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.13 to 1.25. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 46 to 84 x 10-6/°C.

Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene, also known as ABS, is a thermoplastic. Common trade names are Cycolac and Lustran. It is tough, hard and rigid. It has good chemical resistance, dimensional stability, and creep resistance. It is electroplatable and inexpensive. It has moderate mechanical strength but with a tendency to stress crack. Also, it will be degraded (dissolved) when exposed to acetone. ABS is commonly used in electronic housings, auto parts, consumer products, pipe fittings, waste pipes, computer housings (electroplated on the inside), and automotive interior and exterior trim. ABS is considered superior for its hardness, gloss, toughness, and electrical insulation properties. Although ABS plastics are used primarily for their mechanical properties, they also have good electrical properties that are fairly constant over a wide range of frequencies.
