Product Spotlight: PC-ASACOM™ S9470



Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate/Polycarbonate

“A superior high heat modified PC/ASA blend, for exterior applications”.


Building upon the legacy of our established PC/ABS alloys, such as PC-ABSCOM™ B300 and B200PC-ASACOM™ S9470 represents an advanced PC/ASA material. This modified high-heat PC/ASA blend is suitable for exterior applications, offering an exceptional balance of weatherable properties, including enhanced gloss and colour retention.

As part of the same product family as Notoxicom® (FR PC ASA) S6000 and Notoxicom® (FR PC ABS) B6000, PC-ASACOM™ S9470 stands out. Along with its family members, it delivers comparable high performance. The material boasts remarkable strength and UV stability, making it a valuable choice for various applications.

Ideal for external components in outdoor garden equipment or automotive applications that do not need flame retardancy, PC-ASACOM™ S9470 is an excellent option. This product combines all the beneficial characteristics of ASA feedstock, further enhanced with additional strength and heat resistance.

What were the key objectives of the technology development programme?

The objective from the start was to develop a super tough, highly aesthetic ASA material capable of handling rugged outdoor environments with great UV stability.

How were these objectives achieved and what are the key innovations?

PCL combined all their knowledge and years of development project experience into PC-ASACOM™ S9470 to ensure that it fits the objective of a super tough ASA material capable of handling the most demanding applications.

PC-ASACOM™ S9470’s key innovations are that it is weatherable, has high heat resistance and has an exceptionally high impact. Combined with great aesthetics straight from the mould means that PC-ASACOM™ S9470 is an excellent choice for exterior parts, eliminating the need for painting. These innovations set aside PC-ASACOM™ S9470 as a class leading PC/ASA product.
