ASA

Full Name :

Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate

Description :

Acrylic-styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer (ASA) is a thermoplastic elastomer. This type of copolymer has excellent resistance to UV irradiation, heat, moisture, and stress cracking and probably has the best weathering resistance of all acrylonitrile elastomers. It also has good chemical resistance, and high impact strength. Its mechanical properties are very similar to acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) elastomers. However, unlike butadiene-based rubber, ASA has no double bonds in the polymer backbone, which results in significantly improved weathering and UV resistance as well as better long-term heat and chemical resistance when compared to diene rubbers.

PBT

Full Name :

Polybutylene Terephthalate

Description :

Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) has high strength and rigidity for a wide range of applications. PBT is one of the toughest engineering thermoplastics.

Key Properties :

General

PBT+GLASS FIBER

Full Name :

Polybutylene Terephthalate + Glass Fiber

Description :

Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) is a white or off-white semi-crystalline polyester similar in both properties and composition to polyethyleneterephthalate (PET). When compared to PET, it has somewhat lower stiffness and strength, is slightly softer but has very similar chemical resistance and higher impact strength. As it crystallizes more quickly than PET, it is usually favoured for industrial scale moulding.

EVA

Full Name :

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate

Description :

EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It’s an extremely elastic material that can be processed like other thermoplastics. The material has low-temperature toughness, stress-crack and UV radiation resistance. EVA is widely used in the orthotic and prosthetic market for soft inner liners, inner boots, orthotics for hand and wrist, and more. Available with or without additives to reduce friction, EVA comes in semi-transparent white, black, and in black/white (bi-laminated). Please ask your Curbell Plastics representative for more specific information about an individual brand.
