Styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymers with higher heat performance

Polyscope Polymers : 27 August, 2013  (New Product)
At K2013, Polyscope, producer of styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymers and compounds (Xiran), will display some of its most recent developments and new applications.
Styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymers with higher heat performance
Recently introduced Xiran IZ grades are designed to be highly efficient in increasing the high heat performance of engineering plastic, especially in styrenics like ABS. They were developed to respond to the increasing trend within the plastic industry to create styrenic engineering plastics with high temperature resistance and low volatile residuals. The new grades exhibit a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 175C or higher and can be exposed to higher processing temperatures with excellent miscibility in styrenic polymers like ABS.
 
In application developments, very-large thermoplastic sunroof frames for serial production of the Citroen DS3 Cabrio, will be on show at the Polyscope booth at K2013. Xiran compounds offer high dimensional accuracy, very-low warpage, superior adhesion and a low density of the final part. This makes it excellent for high precision parts.
 
Also during the K-show, Polyscope will offer an opportunity to discuss the performance of Xiran, as its in-house experts will guide the audience through a series of seminars on performance, high heat modifications and SMA/ABS-based compounds. 
 
  • Thursday 17 October: XIRAN sunroof frames
  • Friday 18 October: High heat ABS
  • Monday 21 October: XIRAN sunroof frames
  • Tuesday 22 October: High heat ABS
 
Sessions will be held throughout the day and pre-booking is advised.
