ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylic)
ASA is an amorphous resin designed to provide outstanding weather resistance. Similar to acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) in mechanical properties, ASA provides excellent ultraviolet (UV), water whitening and stress crack resistance. These grades exhibit low heat build-up, good flow, good aesthetics, impact strength, toughness, flame retardancy, dark color weatherability and a wide range of viscosities. This series also has recyclable and environmental-friendly products. It can be processed using compounding.
As part of the AuroraShield™ family, ASA compounds are ideal for outdoor applications, building materials, automotive exterior components, roof racks, watercraft and more. Our ASA products comply with Food and Drug Administration (FDA), UL listed (UL 94), REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) and National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) standards. ASA compounds are produced by Enviroplas, an Aurora Plastics company.
