Trends are driving demand for less weight, greater stability and optimized energy efficiency. Aside from that, the aesthetic appearance of a kitchen is undoubtedly important, too. In order to meet the growing and ever-changing consumer demands for sleek aesthetics and lighter weight in modern kitchens, INEOS Styrolution styrenics are the polymers of choice for high-end kitchen appliances. They provide technical characteristics like environmental stress cracking resistance (ESCR) to combat oils and cleaning agents, high color consistency, easy processability and dimensional stability.
INEOS Styrolution polymers are designed to meet new performance and surface aesthetic requirements as well as the technical requirements and industry standards of the refrigerator industry. Inner linings of refrigerators, for instance, are typically made of styrenic thermoplastic products such as HIPS or ABS, where not only excellent surface appearance, chemical resistance and environmental stress cracking resistance, but also mechanical property retention and processability are required.

For this lightweight, highly aesthetic bottle cooler with double-wall system for long-lasting cooling effect, ADOMA selected INEOS Styrolution’s specialty grade Luran® SAN for its low density, glass-like transparency and excellent flowability. After taking the cooler out of the freezer, the “crushed ice” filling has an enduring cooling effect.
INEOS Styrolution's styrenic polymers Terluran® ABS, Novodur® ABS, Lustran® SAN and Luran® SAN are designed to meet the high range of requirements for household appliances like dishwashers.
With exceptional properties like outstanding chemical resistance to combat oils, acids and cleaning agents that cause cracking, durability and high surface quality, our styrenic polymers are the materials of choice. High-end appliances made of Novodur® also provide temperature resistance, color retention and mechanical strength.
Grinding, chopping, mixing, stirring, heating, cooking, steaming, whipping – Thermomix does it all. In order to achieve this, Vorwerk needed a reliable material with a high surface quality and selected INEOS Styrolution’s specialty Novodur® ABS for the back wall housing. It features mechanical strength, dimensional stability and chemical resistance and is the ideal solution for this advanced kitchen all-in-one.
For the fully automated coffee machine, BSH selected INEOS Styrolution’s Terluran® ABS for the housing and Luran® SAN for the highly transparent, smoky topaz colored water tank. Terluran® is the perfect material for self-coloring, providing a balanced property mix for housings. Luran® provides the glass-like transparency, flowability, chemical resistance and color consistency required for BSH’s high-quality and aesthetic water tank.
Novodur® ABS provides outstanding chemical resistance to combat oils and cleaning agents that leads to chemical stress cracking. In addition to that, Novodur® ABS also provides high temperature resistance, durability, impact strength and a high surface quality.
Grate, dice, chop or mix – the colorful Masterchef 2000 food processor from Moulinex is an easy-to-use kitchen all-rounder. INEOS Styrolution’s Terluran® ABS gives the kitchen robot its high-end retro design at an economic price. This high-flow injection molding grade offers key benefits like easy flow, exact color customization, high surface quality, global availability and provides the perfect combination of leak tightness and impact resistance.
By using INEOS Styrolution's styrenics you can be assured that your blender is built with superior quality and lasting durability. INEOS Styrolution's ABS resins Terluran® and Novodur® provide high surface gloss, high flow, good rigidity, excellent strength and stiffness and chemical resistance.
Filtered water containers
As a general-purpose grade of SAN with well-balanced properties, Luran® and Lustran® are ideal for use in product applications like water filters or other food storage devices. They meet a wide range of requirements for the household appliances with good transparency, heat resistance and dimensional stability.
Kärcher selected INEOS Styrolution’s Novodur® ABS to design a sleek, glossy and functional water dispenser. Used to replace metal parts with lightweight, high-performance polymers, Novodur® creates an eye-catching high-gloss surface that complements the look of today’s modern kitchens. As an easy to process material, it enables the seamless integration of buttons for ambient, chilled, sparkling or hot water into the product’s design.
