The Causes of Pitting and Haze on Molded ABS Plastic Surfaces
A widely used plastic resin made from acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene (ABS) has been characterized as a two-phase system.1 The polybutadiene (BD) constitutes a rubbery phase and exists as particles in a glassy matrix of poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile), i.e. SAN. In addition, SAN is usually grafted to the BD balls to increase compatibility between the two phases.
