As the unquestioned global leader for exterior facade materials, INEOS Styrolution’s resins provide superior weatherability to help you make the best first impression with your home.
Numerous companies use Luran® S in their siding production as an ASA capstock over a PVC substrate for enhanced weatherability, especially in mid-range to darker colors. As the leading supplier of ASA to the NA vinyl siding market, customers also look to INEOS Styrolution for lot-to-lot consistency in a material that provides ease of processing, when compared to alternative capstocks.
Developed for XPS insulation panels used in the construction industry, INEOS Styrolution GPPS is a general-purpose polystyrene grade with high heat resistance and good flow properties. The product is foamable with contained cells, so it does not collapse or lose its rigidity once formed as a panel. It is also characterized by high resistance and low permeability to aromas and gases.
The incredible aesthetic qualities of Luran® S were decisive in the creation of a thermoplastic tile containing a photovoltaic cell that blends harmoniously with terracotta roofs. The pre-colored solution saves both time and costs, while the strong UV stability prevents aging and yellowing.
By creating Luran® S, INEOS Styrolution created a new technology to enhance Plastmo’s gutter systems. The outcome: A clear and even surface, dimensional stability and protection against color fading for a long-life gutter system that withstands all weather conditions with a high gloss appearance.
Luran® S is an ideal capstock over PVC foam soffits, providing excellent color and fade resistance. With the use of heated embossing rollers, Luran® S can also support a finished wood grain appearance if desired.
