Since the advent of ASA, its position in a range of applications has been firmly established due to its excellent weatherability and typical mechanical properties similar to abs:
Automotive sector: After prolonged wind erosion, ASA will not be as grey as the specially treated anti-aging abs (many micro-cracks and cavitation on the surface due to wind erosion or water flow). Typical applications for asa are external components such as exterior mirrors, radiator grilles, tail baffles, lampshades, etc. under harsh conditions such as sun and rain, strong winds. At present, it has gradually extended to motorcycle panels, camping cars, small hulls, surfboards and other fields.
Horticulture: ASA has proven to be particularly suitable for horticultural irrigation equipment and lawn cutter casings.
Electrical and electronic fields: Shells that are preferred for durable equipment such as sewing machines, telephones, kitchen equipment, satellite antennas, etc.
Construction: ASA/PVC blends are used in roofing siding and window materials. In this respect, there have been more than 10 years of practical application experience abroad.
In the United States, ASA has been widely used in advanced bathrooms and sanitary products, hot and cold water exchangers, etc. due to its good surface quality and long-lasting color stability, which indicates that ASA also has corrosion resistance to detergents and disinfectants.
