ABS is a polymerized styrene comprised of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. Acrylonitrile and styrene gives ABS rigidity and shiny surface. Polybutadiene gives it toughness and impact strength. Aside from these qualities, ABS performs a better flowability when melting and resists corrosion and abrasion as well. These qualities combined make it an ideal material for injection mold and extrusion.
ABS is a recommended material for beginners.
