Capstocks - Altuglas®

Product range

Some Altuglas® resins are used for capstock applications. They offer several advantages for co-extruded* sheet: Class A appearance, rigidity, dimensional stability and resistance (to heat, UV rays, shock, scratches, chemicals).

Optimised colour and texture properties for exceptionally glossy and long-lasting surfaces. Strike a balance with the ranges of available resins between the right texture and your application's specific characteristics.

 

*(Recommended for coextrusion on many polymeric substrates: ABS, PC/ABS, HIPS, ASA, ASA/PC, PC, PVC)

 

Altuglas® resins used for capstock applications are suited for two manufacturing processes:

  • Thermoforming: technique where a material in the form of a sheet is heated to soften and shape in a mould. The material hardens as it cools and keeps its shape.
  • Coextrusion: extrusion process used to assemble polymers to create multilayered structures requires two or more extruders.
