Additives with high weather resistance

Ineos Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announced that it has improved its leading additive package for weather resistance. The new Luran S SPF60 elevates the UV stabilisation of Luran S to an all new level. Luran S provides all the product properties needed for a demanding outdoor application, e.g. in the automotive or construction industries. The ASA thermoplastic offers a high surface quality, good impact strength including enhanced colour deepness, when exposed to UV irradiation and heat, and an excellent chemical resistance.


SPF60, a new additive package specifically designed for Luran S, enhances the UV resistance even further. SPF60 reveals its superior properties particularly with applications requiring high gloss surfaces. This is making Luran S SPF60 a material of choice for most demanding outdoor applications such as exterior trims, rear-view-mirrors or dual-design front grilles in the automotive industry.
