Product Description
ASTALAC™ ASA 301 is a high melt flow high impact grade of ASA which is designed for applications requiring a combination of abuse resistance, product rigidity, heat resistance and mouldability. As ASA grades show superior colour and property retention compared to ABS, typical applications include signage, outside building products and automotive exterior components.

Note: The letters "UV" or "W" indicate additional UV stabilisation [ ie: ASTALAC™ ASA 301UV ].
