ABS injection moulding at HSV TMP

Case studies: examples from day-to-day practice

HSV Technical Moulded Parts is a specialist in ABS injection moulding for large plastic products. Various thermoplastic polymers are used in injection moulding; one of these is acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).

What is ABS?

ABS is the common abbreviation used for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, an amorphous terpolymer which is grouped in the styrene polymers. ABS consists of about 50% styrene, 5% to 30% butadiene rubber, and acrylonitrile. ABS is used for a wide range of applications. The polymer is lightweight, hard and impact-resistant.

Characteristic properties of ABS

ABS has high rigidity, impact resistance and toughness. Other characteristic properties of ABS: it has a very high surface gloss, can easily be chrome-plated, and is scratch-proof and resistant to a wide range of chemicals. The material can be affected by exposure to weather and UV radiation.

Why use ABS? The advantages of ABS

As a polymer, ABS has many advantages. Additives can be added during the production process, and anti-static properties can be provided for finished products. ABS is decorative and ensures easy maintenance.

ABS is used in injection moulding for

car bumpers
power tools
monitor housings and
casings and housings for household appliances

Surface finish

Various surface finishes can be added to ABS: painted, embossed, galvanised, printed and metallic. The product can be finished in matt, gloss or satin gloss, and ABS comes in any colour you like. See the assembly page for more information on finishing and assembly at HSV Technical Moulded Parts.
