Launch of high-flow “Novodur” ABS grade / Suitable for household and electronics applications
Ineos Styrolution (Frankfurt / Germany; has introduced a grade of ABS as part of its “Novodur” range. “Novodur P4XF” is said to offer an attractive profile balanced between flowability and impact strength. Ineos noted that the grade’s high flowability allows for faster manufacturing by reducing the number of injection gates for large parts and by increasing the number of cavities in multi-cavity tools.

The grade is particularly suitable for large and complex applications in the household and electronics industries, for example air conditioning devices, vacuum cleaners and coffee machines. Ineos said it is also a “perfect fit” for thin-walled applications.

Artur Sokolowski, sales director household and electronics EMEA, said for large parts, Novodur P4XF is an “excellent alternative” to many other materials. “Depending on what materials customers are using today, they will experience faster cycle times, shorter cooling times, a lower warpage, higher stiffness, higher surface quality and scratch resistance and less dust attraction/electrostatic charge,” he said, adding that less injection pressure also allows for smaller injection machines when using P4XF.
