A new line of high-performance, pre-color capstock compounds for decking, fencing and other building product applications is now offered by Americhem, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The eCap compounds are engineered to provide convenience and versatility to profile extruders as they can be highly customized.
Available in a variety of material blends, including PVC, ASA, PMMA and HDPE, eCap compounds allow customers to select key attributes required for the desired aesthetic and physical performance for each application. The new capstock compounds boast highly-weatherable color, enhanced dimensional stability and outstanding durability. They can be formulated for impact resistance, scratch-and-mar endurance, cap-to-substrate adhesion, improved resistance to moisture whitening, and the potential for a Class A fire rating. They can also be combined with Americhem’s nGrain simulated woodgrain.
