Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) Resin Market: China Contributes to Largest of the Market Share

ABS Resin is a superior product among the styrene family. It is the co-polymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. Due to exceptional resistance and toughness properties, it best serves in manufacturing products such as pipes, faucets, automotive body parts, golf club heads, protective head gear, toys and so on.

The Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Market is basically the trading of the ABS Polymers which is a commonly used Thermoplastic Polymer. It is the co-polymer of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene and is a superior product of the Styrene Family.  Its glass transition temperature is approximately 105 °C (221 °F). ABS is amorphous and therefore has no true melting point. ABS can be recycled, although it is not accepted by all recycling facilities. ABS is flammable when it is exposed to high temperatures, such as a wood fire. It will melt then boil, at which point the vapors burst into intense, hot flames.
