Ideally suitable for condensate, chilled or cold water systems, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a strikingly resilient thermoplastic pipework system designed to withstand the impact of use in challenging industrial applications. Playing a prominent role in water treatment, sewerage, as well as beverage and food productions, ABS products are non-toxic and have the Water Research Advisory Scheme (WRAS) approval for use with potable water. Extremely resistant to a wide temperature range (lower than 70°C ), ABS manual valves, like any other ABS product, are strong, versatile, light and easy to fit with the help of a solvent cement. Despite maintaining great performance when associated with impacts of physical or chemical nature, ABS systems have a low resistance to vegetable oils, organic solvents, acetic acid, alcohol or petrol. However, all ABS manual valves can easily withstand contact with organic acids, animal fats and oils, salts, or diluted inorganic acids. ABS products consist of a plastic copolymer specially created to ensure optimal performance for use in all industries. Acrylonitrile promotes superior chemical resistance; butadiene ensures great toughness, while styrene gives smoothness and further impact strength.

ASAP Plastics take great pride in supplying a large variety of ABS industrial ball valves, standard ball valves, footvalves, spring check valves, industrial diaphragm valves, as well as ABS variable area flowmeters. Each of our ABS systems is easy to identify, having a light grey colour scheme.
