Introducing Luran® S BX11012 specially formulated for use by customers in the construction market

Styrolution, global styrenics supplier, will unveil an addition to its Luran® S acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) family of weatherable polymers, Luran® S BX11012, at the International Plastics Showcase in Orlando, which runs from April 2-5.

BX11012 is a specially formulated ASA resin intended for use in low-gloss extrusion applications that require melt flows higher than typical extrusion grade ASA resins. It has excellent impact strength and outstanding weathering characteristics. Due to these attributes, BX11012 was developed for use in the construction market, in particular for decking, fencing and siding applications.

The product can be used as a cap layer over other plastics and offers advanced attributes, especially in areas where plastic building materials, such as vinyl, cannot meet all of the performance parameters on their own. It also provides long-term color stability in a wide range of colors, including mid-range and dark colors, compared to other materials. This provides greater flexibility to builders and architects in considering plastic-based systems for construction projects.

"BX11012 was developed to meet the specific needs of our customers in the construction market," said Ricardo Cuetos, Styrolution Vice President Americas, ABS and Styrenic Specialties. "Through joint collaboration with our customers, we successfully created an extrusion grade material that meets the performance needs of the decking and fencing markets, further establishing ourselves as the market leader in ASA products for the construction industry."
