Typical physical properties

Repeat Unit

ABS repeat unit


Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resins consist of a styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer matrix and a styrene-butadiene copolymer dispersed rubber phase. These are engineering plastics, with better solvent and high temperature resistance than impact polystyrenes. Optimum properties require grafting between the matrix and dispersed phases.
