WEB EXCLUSIVE: Two suppliers have launched new product ranges in styrenics. BASF in Germany (U.S. office in Florham Park, N.J.) extended its Terblend N range of ABS/nylon blends with its first ASA/nylon for greater UV and chemical resistance. New Terblend N BX 13043 also boasts a pleasant feel, good acoustic properties, high impact resistance, and easy processing.
Meanwhile, Ineos ABS in the U.K. (U.S. office in Addyston, Ohio) came out with its first flame-retardant ABS, Novodur L3FR, which will be produced in Spain but is available here. It carries a UL 94V-0 rating at 1.6 mm thickness for all colors and reportedly complies with REACH, RohS, and other EU standards. Another grade with higher impact and chemical resistance is planned for the coming months.
