ELIX ABS with extra high gloss

Description

The ELIX ABS product manufacturing process involves the polymerisation of the rubber phase through an emulsion process, which ensures a perfect control of the rubber phase growth and an excellent glossy finish surface. This intrinsic high gloss characteristic is highly valued in many sectors such as household appliances, consumer goods, E&E or toys, where ELIX has earned a great reputation for expertise in providing high gloss solutions adapted to a wide range of colours. 

Moving a step further, ELIX has recently launched a new development that satisfies customer´s needs in those cases where an extra high gloss finish is required. This new formulation makes it possible to increase the gloss level, maximising colour depth and ensuring good processability and mechanical properties. 

Thanks to the different developed technologies, ELIX grades cover a wide range of applications, from low gloss to very high gloss finish surfaces.
