INEOS Styrolution announces high flow ABS grade
- Novodur® P4XF – material of choice for large housing applications in household and electronics industries
- Novodur® P4XF – perfect fit for thin-walled applications
- Novodur® P4XF – high flowability for easy processing and ultimately faster production
INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces today a new ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) grade as part of its Novodur® family of ABS specialty copolymers. The new material grade, Novodur P4XF, excels with a high flowability and at the same time offers an attractive balance profile between flowability and impact strength. Its product properties make the new grade the material of choice for large and complex applications in the household and electronics industries and contributes to improving their carbon footprint.
INEOS Styrolution’s new Novodur P4XF convinces with a high flowability – the melt volume rate (220 °C/10 kg) is at 60 cm3/10 min (ISO 1133). This allows customers to optimise their production tools for faster manufacturing by reducing the number of injection gates for large parts and by increasing the number of cavities in multi-cavity tools.
Large parts for air conditioning devices, vacuum cleaners and coffee machines are just some examples of targeted applications.
Artur Sokolowski, Sales Director Household and Electronics EMEA, comments: “Novodur P4XF is truly amazing. For large parts, it is an excellent alternative to many other materials. Depending on what materials customers are using today, they will experience faster cycle times, shorter cooling times, a lower warpage, higher stiffness, higher surface quality and scratch resistance and less dust attraction/ electrostatic charge. In addition, less injection pressure allows for smaller injection machines when using Novodur P4XF.”
