Interior component details on cars and trucks can be one of the most important aspects of driver comfort. These parts need to be durable, aesthetically appealing, and able to withstand the tests of time. See how PULSE™ 2000EZ PC/ABS resin from Styron™ is designed to meet these demanding performance requirements.
Styrolution produces acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) copolymers and acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) polymers which are used in a wide variety of durable applications. If your parts demand the highest performance in outdoor applications, high heat stability, high or low gloss levels and great toughness, then consider the options available in the Terluran ABS and Luran S ASA portfolios.
Styrolution carries a broad line of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) resins designed for use in many industries. As part of their continued devotion to the automotive and performance products areas, a line of Novodur® ABS resins has been designed specifically for electroplating applications. Two of these grades are highlighted here:
• Complicated parts are molded stress free
• Available in natural & grey
• Low scrap rate
• Approved to Ford on the WSK-M4D836-A specification (high heat electroplating)
• This high heat grade can be easier to mold than PC/ABS
• Helps achieve thin wall molding
• Low scrap rate
A major home-products molder has recently developed commercial use cutting boards utilizing CALIBRE™ 201-15 PC from Styron. These NSF-approved* cutting boards also feature color coded formulations to prevent cross contamination between food types, such as meats, vegetables or dairy products.
