Ticona has introduced a low-gloss, black acetal copolymer for exterior uses in automotive and other markets.
Hostaform WR140LG has up to 80 percent less gloss than standard ultraviolet-light-stabilized acetals, according to the Florence, Ky., firm. As well, it retains its look longer because it resists surface chalking.
The new grade complements Ticona's low-gloss acetals for automotive interiors, allowing designers to capitalize on acetal´s durability, creep resistance and chemical resistance. Trim elements, wiper components and antenna mounts are potential uses.
