Nylon 66 (PA66)

General Description PA 66 is generally used in the automotive and engineering industry where the applications include food contact parts and screw machined electrical insulators. Often glass filled grades are used. Some glass-fibre-filled polyamide 66s have been developed for operation in air at temperatures of up to 200-210 °C. These PA66’s provides much better performance […]

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA)

General Description EVA is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate and is an elastomeric polymer that produces materials which are ‘rubber like’ in softness and flexibility. The weight percent of vinyl acetate usually varies from 10 to 40%, with the remainder being ethylene. EVA is used in different applications such as craft-foam sheets, padding […]

Styrene Butadiene Block Copolymer (BDS)

General Description BDS is an amorphous clear material that is more flexible than most other clear materials. K-resin is an example of BDS and is used in food packaging, labelling and twist films, shrink film and flooring systems. Pre-Production BDS will absorb 0.08% water in 24 hours at room temperature. This means that drying is […]

Acrylate Styrene Acrylonitrile (ASA)

General Description An amorphous thermoplastic developed as an alternative to ABS, but with improved weather resistance, and widely used in the automotive and building industry. Pre-Production ASA is mildly hygroscopic, so drying may be necessary before processing. It is best to dry all ASA for 2-4 hours at 80ºC-85ºC. When using hopper driers, the temperatures […]
