The company says Styrolux 3G 33 shows three improvements over conventional SBS grades: highest transparency, even on thick-walled moldings; good impact strength and stiffness thanks to a modified molecular morphology; guaranteed good melt flow, enabling faster cycling times and greater output.
Styrolux 3G 33 is aimed at medical applications, displays, cosmetics packaging as well as toys and household articles. “The new combination of properties will enable us to compete better against other clear plastics such as PET, PVC or acrylic,” explains Ursula Seeliger, manager of BASF’s specialty styrenic polymers. BASF will continue to offer the Styrolux injection-molding grades 656 C und 684D alongside Styrolux 3G 33.
