Styrene Acrylonitrile Resin Production Cost Analysis 2021

Styrene acrylonitrile resin or SAN resin is a copolymer plastic. It consists of styrene and acrylonitrile. It is most commonly used in place of polystyrene owing to its greater thermal resistance. The relative composition of SAN resin is generally between 70 and 80% by weight styrene and 20 to 30% acrylonitrile. Larger acrylonitrile content boosts mechanical properties and chemical resistance, but it also adds a yellow tint to the normally transparent plastic.

SAN resin is pretty alike in use to polystyrene. Like polystyrene itself, SAN resin is optically transparent as well as brittle in mechanical behaviour.  When polybutadiene is copolymerised with it, it results in a much tougher material. The acrylonitrile composed within the material boosts the viscosity. Embedded glass fibres of SAN resin lead to a product with high stiffness that can be used for winding bobbins in the electrical engineering industry.

SAN resin is used across a broad range of industries like the food, medical, construction, electrical engineering and sanitary engineering industries. It can be used in food containers, water bottles, kitchenware, computer products, packaging material, battery cases, and plastic optical fibres.
