Title: Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene granulate (ABS); production mix, at plant (Location: RER)


Raw data for polymerization and intermediate products are collected by several producers in Europe; the average is calculated by the consultant based on the production capacity of the companies. The LCI result is calculated with background data from the Boustead database.

Synonyms: Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer; Styrene, acrylonitrile, butadiene polymer; 2-Propenenitrile, polymer with 1,3-butadiene and ethenylbenzene; Acrylonitrile, polymer with 1,3-butadiene and styrene

Technical Purpose: ABS is a well known polymer used in many technical and consumer applications such as: interior and exterior automotive parts, housings for domestic appliances such as hair driers and vacuum cleaners, kitchen appliances such as mixing machines and refrigerator linings, furniture parts, telephones, toys, pipes and profiles.
