Starex ABS has excellent impact strength, moldability and paintability, and is regarded as a very practical material thanks to its wide applications in various fields. In general, starex ABS has modulus and heat resistance, and samsung SDI chemical offers a variety of ABS lineups depending on required features such as general purpose, extrusion,flame retardant, heat resistance, and plating/painting.
starex® ABS, composed of AN, BD and SM, has excellent processability, heat stability and impact strength. It is applicable to various products such as electrical and electronic devices, home appliances and toys.
starex® Extrusion ABS is most suitable for refrigerator liners and construction components. The plastic has good sheet extrusion stability, chemical resistance and vacuum moldability. starex® extrusion ABS for refrigerators especially is the world-class product with the biggest global market share.
starex® Flame Retardant ABS is specially formulated to have the self-extinguishability making it much safer for the use in the electrical & electronic applications complying with the UL 94 regulations, the most widely accepted fire safety standards. starex® Flame Retardant ABS is taking its lead in the global market thanks to its excellent balance of mechanical properties and processability.
Although general purpose ABS has mechanical properties good enough for the practical use in terms of processability, impact strength, etc, its use is sometimes limited at high temperature due to the deformation of its molded products by heat. starex® High Heat Resistant ABS offers an attractive alternative to general purpose ABS and other engineering plastics making it suitable for the applications designed for the use at high temperature.
In general, ABS is a suitable material for metal plating. In consideration of better productivity, however, the material should be more easily etched and have better adhesion strength. starex® Metal Plating ABS generates uniform anchor holes during the etching process and has excellent adhesion strength making it possible to achieve higher productivity and lower metal plating rejections.
Luminous is a premium-class "non-painting resin" that enables the manufacturing of plastic parts without painting. Bright, high gloss and metallic-look Luminous gives off the appearance of a painted surface and has improved features in terms of flow mark and weld line, compared with existing metallic resins.
