INEOS Styrolution introduces new Luran® S 778T G2 UV ASA grade for innovative window facades
- New grade is glass fibre reinforced
- Material of choice for metal-plastic combinations
- Well balanced product property profile
INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, today introduces a new ASA (“acrylonitrile styrene acrylate”) grade offering excellent weatherability and a high surface quality. In combination with properties like a high dimensional stability, the material excels in structural parts for outdoor applications such as window facades.
Luran S 778T G2 UV is an 8 percent glass fibre reinforced ASA grade. The solution offers a clear advantage in terms of UV resistance and shrinkage compared to other plastics solutions. It is the material of choice for metal-plastic combinations and structural parts for outdoor applications. Superior impact strength, dimensional stability, best-in-class weatherability and a high surface quality contribute to an excellent balanced property profile.
The material comes pre-colored eliminating the need for painting of the application.
“It is exciting to see that the material was received very positively by our customers. First applications have already been commercialised,” comments Volker Pieper, Industry Development Manager Styrenics Specialties EMEA.
The new Luran S 778T G2 UV offers a balanced product property profile that makes it attractive for a variety of industries.
