Our gray ASA/ABS panels with a one-sided ASA top layer have got a middle grain, which you can see very well on the detailed image. The gray color of the ASA/ABS panels matches to RAL7040 (window gray). The panels are colored completely gray , so that even the sawing and milling edges have got the color as RAL and are available in a thickness of 2mm or 4mm.
ABS sheets are not UV-resistant. On the other hand, ASA/ABS is a special plastic, where an ASA top layer with UV and weather-resistant properties is inextricably coextruded with the ABS support in an extrusion process.
Comparison from ASA/ABS and ABS
In contrast to conventional gray ABS plastic panels, the gray ASA/ABS panels are resistant to weathering. This is because the ASA/ABS panels have got a special ASA top layer, which is weatherproof and resistant to UV-radiation. The ASA/ABS plates in gray have the properties typical of ABS plates, such as high impact resistance, and good chemical resistance to nonpolar solvents.
Order your ASA/ABS panels in RAL7040 window gray conveniently online directly in the size you need. Just enter your required dimensions for length and width and choose between a thickness of 2mm or 4mm. The cutting takes place on one of our panel saws with high-precision CNC control and a very small sawing tolerance of +/- 1mm. Becasue of the constant storage of gray ASA/ABS sheets, the cutting takes place promptly, so that we can quickly deliver your UV-resistant ABS sheets of the desired size.
Our ASA/ABS plates in gray can be processed in almost all known ways. From machining methods such as sawing, milling or grinding, to cutting with CO2-lasers or water jet cutting machines, ASA/ABS can be cut to any size. Also, the drilling of ABS plates with ASA upper layer isn't a problem. For this purpose, a commercial battery screw is enough.
Thermoforming or deep drawing is not a big challenge with gray ASA/ABS plastic. Therefore, ASA/ABS, appropriate knowledge required, can be drawn in almost any shape and then be painted, as it is often the case in model making or in the production of costumes.
Basically, the gluing or printing of our gray ASA/ABS sheets is not a problem, due to the grained ASA top layer, large-area film adhesions adhere only partially permanently. This also depends on the film thickness and the adhesive strength of the film. ASA/ABS in gray can be glued excellent and thanks to the weather-resistant ASA surface, these boards are therefore also perfect for large-scale paneling of facades.
NOTE: Our gray ASA/ABS sheets are not provided with a protective film due to the grained ASA surface.
