General Description:  

General Description : An amorphous, off-white/greyish engineering thermoplastic that is relatively hard and reasonably tough (maintained at low temperatures). It is manufactured in a wide range of grades tailored to individual end-uses which can vary appreciably in copolymer ratios. Generally they are easily processed and bonded but have poor solvent and fatigue resistance and poor UV resistance (unless stabilized or protected).

Applications include cabinets and casings, baths, shower trays, pipes, boat hulls and vehicle components.
