Acrylonitrile Ethylene Styrene (AES)

Acrylonitrile Ethylene Styrene (AES) - Composed of acrylonitrile, ethylene and styrene, acrylonitrile ethylene styrenes (AES) are opaque, amorphous terpolymers. Though similar to acrylonitrile butane styrene (ABS), their weather and UV resistance make AES plastics excellent for outdoor applications, such as automotive exterior and interior parts, indoor and outdoor household goods and electrical components. Other acrylonitrile ethylene styrene features include low friction, high impact resistance, high rigidity and flame retardancy.
