NatureWorks launches new ABS replacement formulations

NatureWorks has launched new ABS replacement formulations, which it says clearly demonstrates that its naturally advanced Ingeo resins have evolved into a practical and safe alternative.

The new ABS replacement formulations, according to a NatureWorks press release find applications in a broad range of styrenics in terms of performance, price and eco profile.

“The three new formulated Ingeo injection molding offerings built on NatureWorks’ heat-stable technology platform offer modulus performance features with excellent chemical resistance,” it adds.

“Two formulations offer medium and high impact performance with high bio content and makes them ideal for injection molding applications, particularly those currently utilising ABS,” it informs.

The high modulus Ingeo formulation for profile extrusion applications maintains excellent impact performance.

And just as with the injection molding offerings, this formulation’s high stiffness offers opportunities for down gauging and materials savings,” NatureWorks notes.

“Our new Ingeo formulations take factors like thermal performance as given and move beyond that to offer a comprehensive suite of properties, which in some cases exceed ABS,” Frank Diodato from NatureWorks explains.

“Compared to ABS, these Ingeo formulations also offer significantly improved resistance for many common household chemicals like spray, wipe cleaning agents, oils and acetone,” he too adds.

Diodato further explains that these new Ingeo formulations derive their functionality from the crystallization enabled by combining NatureWorks’ newly commercialised polymer chemistries.

“The resulting Ingeo formulation has a renewably sourced carbon content of approximately 90 per cent,” he observes. (AR)
