Homerit Lifestyle Series ASA-PVC co-extruded color profiles are imported from Zhongcai Profiles Co. (www.zhongcai.com) – the first Chinese PVC-U profile manufacturer to develop color ASA-PVC co-extruded window profiles.
Developed in the 1970’s, ASA is a ternary polymer which is composed by Acrylonitile, Styrene and Acrylate. It belongs to shock-resistance modified SAN resin. ASA is major products of GE Plastics which was subject to General Electric now SABIC Innovative Plastics, a world leader in providing plastic material solutions.
ASA was evolved from ABS, which is composed of Acrylonitile, Butadiene and Styrene. It preserves many excellent engineering plastics’ mechanical and physical properties of ABS. ASA products can not only resist degradation, ageing and color deterioration caused by the ultraviolet rays, but also reduce the decomposition or color changing caused by the high temperature during the oxidative manufacturing procedure in the atmosphere, and greatly promote the anti-aging and weatherproof performance of materials. According to the test results, the anti-aging performance of ASA is 10 times greater than ABS.

ASA-PVC profiles are durable, UV and chemical resistant, cost-effective with eye catching color on the outside surface of the white PVC-U profiles. For more information about ASA resin visit website www.sabic-ip.com .
