​What is ABS material?

2023-12-27

The full name of ABS is Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, which is a thermoplastic macromolecular structural material with high strength, good toughness and easy processing, also called ABS resin. The appearance is opaque and ivory-colored, and its products can be colored in various colors with high gloss. ABS is amorphous and therefore has no real melting point and can be blended with a variety of resins to produce new properties and new applications.Therefore, ABS is the most suitable choice for industrial telephone handset whether in appearance or raw materials,


1.Is ABS material plastic?

ABS materials are accurately classified into ABS resins andABS plastics. Among them, ABS plastic is the product of ABS resin, which is the engineering plastic with improved performance after modification of ABS resin (such as adding additives, alloys, etc.). Plastic generally refers to finished products, such as plastic cups, bowls, etc. Resin generally refers to raw materials, such as polyethylene resin, polypropylene resin, polyester resin, etc., so resins are one of the raw materials of plastics, and plastics are the products of resins. But in general the terms plastic and resin can be used universally and the distinction is not very strict.Our factory can customize waterproof industrial telephone handset, anti-vandal telephone handset, temperature telephone handset, etc. made of ABS.


2.What is the difference between ABS material and PC material?

PC is also called polycarbonate. It is a colorless, transparent, amorphous thermoplastic material, heat-resistant, impact-resistant, flame-retardant, and has good mechanical properties at normal service temperature. UL94 V-0 flame retardant without additives.

PC has good light transmittance, light weight, easy processing and no pollution. It is the best impact-resistant plastic with the disadvantages of difficult forming and easy cracking. It is an engineering plastic with high price, but it has the advantages of transparency, high impact resistance, high temperature resistance and high dimensional accuracy. It is mainly used in household electrical lighting and other industries.

ABS has high strength, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, good chemical resistance and excellent electrical properties. With high impact resistance, high heat resistance, flame retardant, enhanced, transparent grade, the surface can be plated, vacuum coated, printed, painted and painted. It belongs to common plastics and is easy to form. Mainly used for enclosure products.


3.What is the connection between ABS and PC and our company's products?

Our company mainly produces handset and keypad, while the outer shell material of handset is mainly ABS and PC. It can also produce different handsets of ABS carbonization, ABS flame retardant, ABS757, PC explosion-proof and other materials according to the product characteristics required by customers. Due to the proportion composition of ABS material, Butadiene provides low temperature ductility and impact resistance for ABS resin, Acrylonitrile provides hardness, heat resistance, acid-base resistance and other chemical corrosive properties for ABS resin, and Styrene provides hardness, processing fluidity and product surface finish for ABS resin, so our company's handsets are widely used in industrial, outdoor, marine, pipe gallery and other places.

Our factory has its own R&D team, and the customizable industrial telephone handset are suitable for various industries such as security, public telephones, prisons, self-service terminals, etc. If you are interested in our products, please feel free to contact us.
