As of April 1, CLEARLUX® from INEOS Styrolution will complement ALBIS‘ European distribution portfolio of transparent products. CLEARLUX® comes with FDA and European food approval. Initially, it will be offered in a standard transparent version, with three “smoke topaz” grades to follow soon.
The CLEARLUX® portfolio offers solutions based on methyl methacrylate acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (MABS), also known as transparent ABS. Besides the excellent transparency already recognised from the TERLUX® and ZYLAR® portfolio, CLEARLUX® products provide a unique combination of excellent flow, high impact strength, heat resistance and good colourability. These features make CLEARLUX® particularly suited for household, sports and leisure applications such as transparent covers or housings as well as toys and stationery. CLEARLUX® is not suitable for use in medical applications.
Dirk Schaefer, Vice President of Product Management and Product Manager Specialty Polymers at ALBIS, said:
“We are very pleased that INEOS Styrolution has trusted us with the pan-European distribution rights for CLEARLUX®, which perfectly complements our existing portfolio of transparent materials and will generate a lot of interest due to its outstanding price-performance ratio.
“Entrusting us with this new product further demonstrates the excellent and long-standing partnership between INEOS Styrolution and ALBIS.”
Pieter Bekaert, Senior Distribution Manager at INEOS Styrolution, added:
“ALBIS has proven excellent market coverage and through its impressive technical expertise is able to advise and support customers in developing applications. We are convinced that CLEARLUX® is in good hands with ALBIS.”
