What are the 9 main plastic resins

Plastic resin is a widely used material in manufacturing, with excellent characteristics such as plasticity, toughness, corrosion resistance, etc., is widely used in a variety of lines

The following nine types of plastic resins are commonly used

  1. ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) – a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its high impact resistance, toughness, and good heat resistance. It is commonly used in automotive parts, toys, and household appliances.ABS PA-764B
  2. MABS (Methyl Methacrylate Butadiene Styrene) – a type of styrene copolymer that combines the properties of PMMA and ABS. It has good impact resistance, transparency, and weatherability. It is used in automotive, household appliances, and medical devices.
  3. SAN (Styrene Acrylonitrile) – a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its good stiffness, toughness, and chemical resistance. It is used in packaging, electrical and electronic components, and kitchenware.
  4. PS (Polystyrene) – a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its good stiffness, transparency, and low cost. It is used in packaging, disposable utensils, and insulation.
  5. PMMA (Polymethyl Methacrylate or Acrylic) – a transparent thermoplastic polymer that is known for its excellent optical properties, weather resistance, and scratch resistance. It is used in signboards, lighting, and automotive parts.
  6. MS (Methacrylate Styrene) – a thermoplastic polymer that combines the properties of PMMA and styrene. It has good impact resistance, transparency, and weatherability. It is used in automotive, household appliances, and medical devices.
  7. PC (Polycarbonate) – a transparent thermoplastic polymer that is known for its high impact resistance, heat resistance, and optical clarity. It is used in safety glasses, automotive parts, and electronic components.
  8. ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate) – a thermoplastic polymer that combines the properties of ABS and acrylic. It has good weatherability, UV resistance, and color stability. It is used in outdoor applications, such as automotive and building products.
  9. PP (Polypropylene) – a thermoplastic polymer that is known for its high chemical resistance, stiffness, and low cost. It is used in packaging, automotive parts, and household items.
