Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate
Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) is a thermoplastic. It is produced by introducing a grafted acrylic ester elastomer during the copolymerization reaction between styrene and acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate material has great toughness and rigidity, good chemical resistance and thermal stability, outstanding resistance to weather, aging and yellowing, and high gloss.
Its better properties over other thermoplastic material such as ABS, have resulted in ASA polymers being increasingly adopted in automotive, building and construction and other end-user industries.
Automotive exterior, e.g. radiator grills, mirror housings
Automotive interior, e.g. overhead compartments
PVC capstock, e.g. sheets, sidings, roof tiles
Truck cabin parts, wind turbines
