ABS uses are probably the best guarantor in the world to protect and absorb any knock or scrape you have with another car’s offending bumper. Sometimes the odd scrapes in your car are unavoidable, especially in slow moving traffic, which is why your car bumper generally takes the impact of the knock. Bumpers are built to absorb shock, which is why they’re manufactured out of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene (ABS sheet). This durable, high impact plastic can absorb extremely high impacts
ABS Uses on Different Products – Eagle Plastics Ltd
But car bumpers are only one of the many ABS uses for products that are used by all of us every day. As it’s tough, strong and surprisingly light, ABS uses actually come in all shapes and sizes. You’ll probably have used a number of products made out of ABS without giving it a second thought.
Used in many different ways
As well as bumpers on cars, ABS shock absorption products include white water canoes, golf club heads and – with children in mind – Lego bricks and plastic clarinets. ABS uses also involve manufactured products for pipe drains, particularly ventilation pipework, and protective headgear for industries as diverse as tree surgery and construction. ABS can also be used in many everyday kitchen appliances.
Other ABS uses include using sheets of it to protect homes and the underside of floors. This can be invaluable to your home during inclement weather, particularly violent storms.
