Product Description
ASTALON™ S2000 / S2001 / S2003 are the standard medium viscosity (medium melt flow) grades in the ASTALON™ range and are well suited to general purpose injection moulding applications. Offering an exceptional combination of transparency, toughness, heat resistance, flame retardancy and processability, typical applications include food processors and other kitchen appliances, electrical power tool housings, medical dialysis components and domestic steam iron water tanks.

Note: [ Standard grade = S2000 ] / [ FDA approved = S2001 ] / [ Steam resistant = S2003 ].
