INEOS Styrenics has announced the launch of CLEARBLEND® 165 resin. This new grade expands and enhances the CLEARBLEND product line by providing a significantly higher level of toughness than similar resins without sacrificing clarity in demanding injection molded applications.
In 2010 INEOS Styrenics launched the CLEARBLEND line of impact modified styrene acrylic copolymer blends to provide brand owners, product designers and plastics processors a balance of clarity and toughness in a cost effective dry blended copolymer. With the introduction of CLEARBLEND 165 practical toughness is taken to a new level without adversely affecting resin clarity.
While improving toughness, CLEARBLEND 165 was also engineered to deliver on many of the existing advantages that define our entire lineup of High Performance Styrenic brands. These advantages include low specific gravity, low water absorption, and superior processability in injection molding applications.
CLEARBLEND, like our other brands, NAS® and ZYLAR®, is manufactured without bisphenol-A or phthalates for safe use in applications from drinkware to toys.
"The launch of CLEARBLEND 165 demonstrates the commitment of INEOS Styrenics to being an industry leading and customer focused organization, delivering consistently innovative, high quality products and services," said Ed Barnes, Vice President North American Polymers.
