PC/ASA injection moulding at HSV-TMP the advantages

PC/ASA Injection Moulding

In PC/ASA (polycarbonate and acrylonitrile styrene acrylate), PC and ASA go through thermoplastic blending during the injection moulding process. PC/ASA injection moulding gives plastic products, shaped components and housings added material properties that offer various advantages during use and contribute to a long service life. The advantages include:

  • significant strength and rigidity
  • high surface gloss
  • dimensional stability
  • thermal insulation & electrical insulation
  • minimal creep, even at higher temperatures (up to 130 ºC).
  • good toughness, even at low temperatures (down to -100 ºC).
  • high hardness & good scratch resistance
  • flame-retardant & heat-resistant
  • weatherproof & UV-resistant
  • sterilisation possible

PC/ASA injection moulding

PC/ASA injection moulding is one of the options chosen when plastic products and housings need to be weatherproof, UV-resistant, strong, hard, scratch-resistant and flame-retardant. And the high-gloss surface of this thermoplastic alloy requires almost no post-processing.

Extra strengtheners, high-gloss, heat-resistant and anti-static properties can be added during the injection moulding process.
