ABS molding parts manufacturing solution
What is ABS molding resin?
ABS resin full name is Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene
ABS Molding Resin Typical Applications
ABS molding resin is one of the most widely used engineering plastics. With impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance and excellent electrical performance, and also has the characteristics of easy processing, product size stability, good surface gloss, easy painting, coloring, can also be used for surface plating, electroplating, metal welding, hot pressing and bonding etc. secondary manufacturing process.
Automotive (instrument and interior trim panels, glove compartment doors, wheel covers, mirror housings, etc.),
Power tools applications (hair dryers, blenders, food processors, lawnmowers, etc.),
Home appliance(telephone housings, typewriter housings, typewriter keys, camera enclosure, TV enclosure and plastic parts, recorder enclosure, radio enclosure, projector enclosure, power supplier enclosure, calculator,air conditioner, MP3/MP4 enclosure, carder reader etc.)
Communication Appliacation(phone enclosure, router enclosure, terminal card reader, access control plastic parts, teller machines, bank key enclosure etc.)
Building Appliacation( ABS tube, plumbing fixture, ABS decoration parts, etc.)
ABS Injection Molding Processing Conditions
ABS resin drying: ABS resins are hygroscopic and drying is required prior to processing. Suggested drying conditions are 80 – 90 C (176 – 195 F) for a minimum of 2 hours. Resin moisture content should be less than 0.1%
Melt Temperature: 200 – 280 C (392 – 536 F); Aim: 230 C (446 F)
ABS Injection Pressure: 500 – 1,000 bar (7,250 – 14,500 psi)
Mold Temperature: 25 – 80 C (77 – 176 F). (Mold temperatures control the gloss properties; lower mold temperatures produce lower gloss levels)
Mold Temperature: Moderate – high
Major Manufacturers For ABS Injection Molding Resin
Dow Chemical (Magnum grades), GE Plastics (Cycolac), Bayer (Lustran), BASF (Terluran), Chi Mei (Polylac), LG Chemical (Lupos), Cheil Synthesis.
ABS plasticmanufacturing in SEASKYTOOLING
ABS is one of major resin SEASKYTOOLING used for plastic molding, it is one of easy injection molding resin.
ABS molding parts prototype manufacturing
Normally we use the CNC machining process with ABS workpiece to have ABS plastic prototype made. After that we will have the polishing or painting, sure silk-screen printing and plate are possible. This prototype manufacturing can be achieved ABS plastic parts prototype. Also lots of customers have us to manufacture for small batch of ABS plastic parts.
Injection mold manufacturing for ABS injection molding
The mold core and cavity steel can be choose P20, 2311, 2312, H13 and 2344 etc. for plastic injection mold for ABS plastic molding. Sure we should choose the steel based your demand such as plastic injection.
Normally we just need 4 weeks to finish the injection mold making to have the mold trial for sampling.
During the injection mold manufacturing process, we will also offer weekly report for the mold making. Sure we offer the molding parameter report and samples inspection report.
ABS plastic injection molding
SEASKYTOOLING offer various color ABS plastic injection molding, also offer the secondary process such as plate, painting and silk-screen printing etc. for ABS plastic molding parts.
