Do you know luggage materials – ABS?

There are quite a few suitcase brands that sell “luxury” suitcases when in reality they’re just overpriced ones made from cheap materials. By learning the basics about different luggage materials, you’ll learn how to differentiate between well-made suitcases and overpriced ones.

Hardside Luggage Materials

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

The Ultimate Guide to Luggage Materials 1

Short for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, ABS is a mix of three different materials. Although it’s widely used in other industries as well, it’s one of the most popular materials used for hardside suitcases, especially in affordable luggage due to its cheap production costs.

When compared to other plastics used in hard-shell suitcases, ABS is the most rigid one. However, the rigidness doesn’t account for durability because polypropylene and polycarbonate are much more durable and will last longer. Due to the non-flexible nature of ABS, these suitcases are much more likely to eventually develop cracks in the hard case.

ABS is also one of the lightest plastics used in luggage – it’s a bit lighter than polycarbonate, but not as light as polypropylene. That’s why cheaper hardside suitcases are often lighter than the more expensive ones made from PC (Polycarbonate).
