    Frequently asked questions

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a food grade plastic and is considered as safe for humans. It is non-toxic and so it is frequently used in food-related products, such as foods processors or refrigerator linings. ABS does, however, have a low melting point, meaning it should not be exposed to heat.

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is used in many different types of products, some examples include: musical instruments, vacuum cleaners, kitchen utensils, 3D printing materials, childrens’ toys, tools, electronics casings, and plug sockets.

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is made from the monomers acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. These monomers (molecules) are put through a process called polymerisation, during which they are bonded together to form polymer chains of ABS.

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is BPA free. BPA stands for Bisphenol A, an industrial chemical that has been used in the production of various plastics since the 1950s. Despite its long history of use in plastics manufacturing, research has shown that BPA exposure can result in adverse effects of the human endocrine system. However, the levels of exposure to BPA in the day to day lives of most people is unlikely to cause any real harm.

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic made by polymerising the monomers acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. It is stiff, strong and resistant to impact and chemicals; combine these properties with the fact that it is very inexpensive, it is a very popular choice in engineering settings.

    Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastics are 100% recyclable. The process for recycling ABS is generally the same, though it can sometimes vary. Usually, you will first ensure that all non-ABS materials have been separated from the batch of ABS  to be recycled. It will then be thoroughly cleaned and shredded into small pieces that are melted down to form pellets. These pellets are recycled ABS and can go back into manufacturing.
