Shuman Plastics Introduces New ABS Compounds for Plastics Processing



(MARCH 2007) - Shuman Plastics, Inc., Buffalo, New York announces the availability of its new ABS compounds, 710H Utility Black, 720H Black, 730H White, and 780H Gray. The new compounds will be introduced to the plastics processing industry at PLAST-EX 2007, Toronto, Ontario, Booth #111. They company states that the compounds provide ease of processing, high impact strength, and good resistance to chemicals.

Tested in compliance with ASTM methodology, the new ABS compounds have an IZOD impact strength of 5 ft-lbs/in (±0.05) based on a notched, 1/8-inch thick trial specimen. The specific gravity is 1.04, and the melt flow rate is 4.0 (GM/10 min.) ASTM D-1238. Shuman Plastics recommends processing conditions of 400°F to 440°F (204°C to 227°C) for injection molding and 350°F to 420° F (176°C to 215°C) for extrusion. Dehumidified drying for 2 to 24 hours at temperatures of 190°F minimum to 200°F maximum (88°C/93°C), or tray drying 4 to 24 hours at 170°F minimum to 200°F maximum (77°C/93°C) is also recommended.

Established in 1947, Shuman Plastics supplies thermoplastic raw materials, including compounds and resins, to the plastics manufacturing industry worldwide. In addition, the company provides resource recovery and toll processing services. Shuman Plastics also manufactures 10 grades of Dyna-Purge®, a proprietary engineered purging compound that is said to cut downtime, reduce scrap, lower purging costs and increase productivity for injection molders, extruders, and blow molders.
