ASA plastic material introduction


   ASA (English name: Acrylonitrile Styrene acrylate copolymer), engineering plastics, is a graft copolymer of acrylate rubber body with acrylonitrile and styrene. The molding temperature is 170-230 °C.

Specific gravity: 1.05 g/cm 3 Molding shrinkage: 0.4-0.7% Molding temperature: 170-230 ° C Drying conditions: 80-90 ° C for 2 hours.


Formulation process:

  ASA resin is mainly produced by blending technology. The main raw materials are ASA powder and AS resin as well as colorants, antioxidants, internal and external lubricants, etc.

The main equipment is twin-screw extruder. Other supporting equipments include high-speed batching machine, automatic weighing feeder, cooling granulator, automatic packaging machine, quality inspection equipment (melt ester instrument, universal testing machine, etc.). A finished silo is required to reach a certain size.


Advantages of ASA plastic:

1, ASA has good mechanical and physical properties

ASA and ABS are similar in structure and consist of acrylonitrile and butadiene rubber, which retains the excellent mechanical and physical properties of ABS as an engineering plastic.

2, ASA has strong weather resistanceIf a polymer contains a double bond, the double bond is easily opened by ultraviolet rays in sunlight having a large energy intensity, thereby causing a decrease in the aging resistance of the polymer, and the ASA is desaturated. The double-bonded acrylic rubber replaces the butadiene rubber containing unsaturated double bonds in ABS, so it not only resists degradation, aging, fading caused by ultraviolet radiation, but also decomposes or discolors caused by high temperature in the oxidation process in the atmosphere. With strong protection, the material's anti-aging and weather resistance are greatly improved. According to the test results, the anti-aging performance of ASA is more than 10 times that of ABS.

3, ASA has better high temperature performance

4, ASA is an anti-static material, can make the surface less dust


ASA application areas:


1. Automotive: After a long period of wind erosion, ASA will not be as grey as the specially treated aging-resistant ABS (many micro-cracks and cavitation on the surface due to wind erosion or water flow). Typical applications for ASA are external components such as exterior mirrors, radiator grilles, tailgates, and lampshades that are exposed to harsh conditions such as sun and rain, strong winds, and the like. At present, it has gradually extended to motorcycle panels, camping cars, small hulls, surfboards and other fields.


2. Horticulture: ASA has proven to be particularly suitable for horticultural irrigation equipment and lawn cutter casings.


3. Electrical and electronic fields: Shells that are preferred for durable equipment, such as sewing machines, telephones, kitchen equipment, satellite antennas, etc.


4. Construction: ASA/PVC blends are used for roofing siding and window materials. In this respect, there have been more than 10 years of practical application experience abroad. In the United States, ASA has been widely used in advanced bathroom and sanitary products, hot and cold water exchangers, etc. due to its good surface quality and long-lasting color stability, which indicates that ASA also has corrosion resistance to detergents and disinfectants.
