Ineos Styrolution has debuted 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.
|High flow ABS grade targets use in air conditioning devices, vacuum cleaners and coffee machines.|
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. Large parts for air conditioning devices, vacuum cleaners and coffee machines are just some examples of targeted applications.
Novodur P4XF exhibits high flowability – the melt volume rate (220 °C/10 kg) is at 60 cm3/10 min (ISO 1133). This allows customers to optimize 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.
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, 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.”
