Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) is a commonly used thermoplastic polymer. It has similar mechanical properties as ABS, but provides a much higher weather resistance.
Plastic’s App Perform ASA features combination of high strength, good UV resistance and a great surface finish. It’s also has minimal warpage compared to other ASA or ABS printing materials.
It’s a great material choice for printing of outdoor fixtures and elements.
preparation of test specimens with relevance to the final application. Also serves a role in the processabilty evaluation and defining processing parameters of the final product.
Injection molding of samples from elastomers to high temperature materials into a temperature regulated mold. Filament production, from hundreds of grams to hundreds of kgs and printing samples for evaluation of print quality, parameters definition, and material properties. Blown film of a lab-scale bubble, to evaluate film quality and performance
Twin screw extrusion of multiple samples for evaluation of composition (loading level %), processing parameters (Temp, RPM, Throughput), add-on sequence
(Main, Side, Liquid Inj) etc….
Capable of feeding pellets, powders, liquids, recycled materials and much more… Controlling the residance time, degree of mixing, and other process parameters Flexible down stream of water or air cooling for water sensitive materials
