ABS resin buttons are quite simply buttons made of ABS resin material. Now, let’s take it one step at a time.
We have already covered the difference between resin buttons and plastic buttons and we have discovered, that resin is actually a chemical compound obtained from plants, which means that it is completely natural. It is a solid or highly viscous substance of clear yellow or brownish color secreted by plants for protective reasons or as a result of an injury. When processed, it turns into a bright, transparent, solid, and heavy material suitable for various applications and very popular for manufacturing buttons.
ABS is the acronym for Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, a common thermoplastic resin generally used for the production of buttons. The material is known for its medium strength and reasonable price. It is a very rigid, tough and hard material with remarkable chemical, impact, and heat resistance, as well as dimensional stability. The material combines the toughness of the polybutadiene rubber and the strength of the acrylonitrile and styrene polymers, which makes it very durable and the best of the styrenic family.
The Features and Limitations of ABS Buttons
One of the biggest advantages of ABS buttons is that they are remarkably tough and resistant, especially when it comes to impact and temperature. They perform well at both extremely high and low temperatures. ABS resin buttons are resistant, strong, rigid, stable under limited loads, and have great dimensional stability, They are known for their superb ductility and durability. Their limitations include lower solvent resistance and poor weatherability. In addition, ABS material produces a lot of smoke when burned.
Here, at SBS Zipper we offer a large variety of high-quality ABS resin buttons of different shapes and colors, for a reasonable price.
