Product Description
ASTALON™ E2000U / E2001U / E2003U are the high viscosity (low melt flow) grades in the ASTALON™ range and are well suited to extrusion sheeting, rod and profile applications requiring UV stabilisation (U). Offering an excellent balance of transparency, toughness, UV stability, flame retardancy and processability, typical applications include fluorescent lamp tubes, telephone box enclosures, corrugated roof sheeting and shutter door panels.

Note: [ Standard grade = E2000U ] / [ FDA approved = E2001U ] / [ Steam resistant = E2003U ].
