Acrylonitrile (ACN) is used to make acrylic fibres, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), acrylamide, and styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN), among other materials. Acrylic fibres (AF), used in carpets and clothing, account for over half of total demand. ABS and SAN resins used in pipes and fittings, automobiles, furniture and packaging, consume about 30% of output. Smaller applications include nitrile rubber copolymers, adiponitrile and acrylamide and hydrogen cyanide.
