What material is the vacuum cleaner housing made of?


Vacuum cleaner housing material

A vacuum cleaner is cleaner, time-saving, and labor-saving than a traditional broom, making it a perfect tool for lazy people. But to make this lazy artifact both useful and durable, the application of materials is also important.



Due to the high usage rate at home, whether the vacuum cleaner material is sturdy and durable is also one of the key considerations, especially for the large volume of the vacuum cleaner barrel shell, which is most prone to bumps. What materials are there in the vacuum cleaner casing?


There are mainly ABS and metal materials, among which ABS material is the most widely used.


What are the characteristics of these materials? But whether it‘s ABS or metal casing, the stability between the cylinders is better.


  1. ABS material



As one of the five major synthetic resins, ABS has excellent impact resistance, heat resistance, low temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and electrical properties. It also has characteristics such as easy processing, stable product size, and good surface gloss. It has good toughness, high hardness, and is non-toxic and impermeable. It has excellent comprehensive physical and mechanical properties, making it the most suitable for use in vacuum cleaner shells.



Not only vacuum cleaners, ABS materials can be found in many other small household appliances.


  1. Metal materials



Compared to ABS, metal materials have better performance in hardness and toughness, good heat and low temperature resistance, bright surface, and more textured appearance. However, their disadvantages are that they are not easy to process and have a heavier weight, so their usage is much lower than that of ABS materials.


As the most commonly used ABS material, in addition to its own performance, consumers have increasingly high environmental requirements for it. Many brand manufacturers have already started using recycled materials in vacuum cleaners to reduce carbon emissions and better meet consumer requirements.

For example, Electrolux, a large home appliance manufacturer, won the iF Design Award by using 50% -65% recycled materials in its 600 series/AEG 6000 series vacuum cleaners to address sustainability issues.

BV Group conducts a comprehensive evaluation of Midea through five requirements: "environmental protection, traceability, renewable standards, social responsibility, and general principles". Midea vacuum cleaners use recycled materials in their products through the research and innovation of green technology to reduce environmental impact, and have obtained the GRS 4.0 certification certificate issued 

 by BV.
