MOSCOW (MRC) -- INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has today announced the introduction of an extension to its high-performance Novodur® line of specialty ABS products, said the company.
The new Novodur E3TZ is an extrusion grade that is a suitable for a variety of applications including food trays, sanitary applications and suitcases.
INEOS Styrolution’s Novodur family of ABS specialty products has been developed to offer a range of product properties making the various grades the material of choice for many applications across multiple industries. Properties like high impact strength, chemical resistance, high gloss and food contact compliancy make Novodur grades also a very attractive solution for many healthcare applications. Novodur grades are known for good flowability allowing for easy processing.
The new Novodur E3TZ is no exception. It offers good thermoforming properties and in particular high melt strength, good impact strength as well as higher ESCR. The fact that it complies with FDA food contact regulations makes it an ideal material for a broad range of applications including fridge liners. It offers the additional benefit of cost reductions due to the production of thinner walls.
Philipp Deitmerg, Commercial Product Manager Novodur, says: “The Novodur E3TZ extrusion grade is a complementary extension to the existing Novodur product family. I am excited about this new product especially after having seen the very positive initial reaction of our customers."
