High-performance Clear Styrenic Block Copolymers (SBC) Asaflex™
Asaflex™ is a styrene-butadiene block copolymer (SBC) characterized by both superior transparency and high impact resistance. As the polybutadiene-phase (i.e., the rubber-phase) dispersion in Asaflex™ is on a finer scale than the wavelength of visible light, Asaflex™ has flexibility and hinge characteristics while maintaining high transparency.
Due to good compatibility with styrenic resins such as GPPS, Asaflex™ can be blended at arbitrary ratio.
*210 N Load, 50 K/h
*32mm Thick Plate
Applications and UsageAsaflex™ can be used in various molding methods such as injection, extrusion, inflation molding and etc. just same as styrenic resins. It can also be used for shrink film applications with high elongation.
