What is ABS Plastic Material?

ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is an economical engineering thermoplastic that is easy to machining and manufacture. The typical ABS manufacturing processes include ABS injection molding, ABS CNC machining, and ABS 3D printing. It is a copolymer made by polymerizing three monomers: acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. ABS plastic is widely used in various industries due to its desirable properties and ease of processing, including ABS automotive parts, ABS consumer goods, ABS toys, electronics, ABS computer housings, luggage, and various household items.
