INEOS Styrolution introduces new benchmark for weather resistance for its Luran® S


Frankfurt, Germany

  • State-of-the-art UV stabilisation
  • Available with INEOS Styrolution’s ASA[1] Luran® S and Luran® S ECO
INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has today 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.

Nils Becker, Technical Product Manager EMEA, says: “I am excited to be able to offer our customers a new solution that makes their outdoor applications even more attractive than before. I am convinced that end users will appreciate the new solution a lot.”

“SPF60” will be available in addition to the already existing “SPF30” additive package.
