Technological properties

Application areas

The strength, machinibility, durability and weatherability makes ASA the prefered replacement for ABS. It has a higher impact resistance and is ideal for outdoor use due to its UV resistance.

Handling recommendations

Store at room temperature (18-27°C / 65-80°F), out of direct heat and sunlight, and in a dry place. When stored correctly, this material has a shelf life of 1 year.
