Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a chemically resistant, opaque thermoplastic polymer and amorphous polymer made of ABS. ABS is a material with good mechanical qualities and a high level of surface quality. ABS also has good electrical insulating characteristics in addition to these. Electronic housings, automobile parts, consumer products, tubing, and Lego toys are just a few examples. ABS, on the other hand, is vulnerable to polar solvents.
ABS resins with functional surfaces can offer a number of performance advantages in a variety of applications. Alfa Chemistry can provide functionalized surface coating services for ABS materials. You can modify the surface qualities of practically any ABS resin-related product using our wide and simple surface modification methods. You may confidently modify the surface of your product if you choose to deal with us!
Alfa Chemistry provides customers with a number of polymer surface modification technologies that can be used to change the surface of ABS materials and improve their varied surface qualities. Our surface modification technology options include but are not limited to the following.
Chemically stable, optically transparent, and very durable, these nanoscale coatings can be created.
Case 1: Environmentally friendly chemical nickel plating using supercritical CO2 on hydrophilic modified ABS
From printed circuit manufacture to decorative coatings on plastic products, plastic surfaces are metallized for a number of industrial uses. Plastic items that have been metallized get metallic qualities like reflectivity, abrasion resistance, electrical conductivity, and aesthetic shine. Alfa Chemistry successfully achieved scCO2-assisted chemical plating of Ni-P on ABS via hydrophilic copolymer modification. The thickness of the metal-polymer composite layer controls adhesion between the metal layer and the polymer substrate.
