ASA high rubber powder is a ternary graft copolymer consisting of acrylonitrile (A), styrene (S) and acrylate (A). As an excellent performance product, ASA high rubber powder has a wide variety of products and wide application fields, involving modified plastics, electronic appliances, automobiles, medical treatment, building materials, sporting goods and other fields. In recent years, with the rapid development of the downstream market, the market demand for ASA high rubber powder has been increasing, and the industry scale has been expanding year by year.
According to the “Special Research Report of ASA High rubber powder Benchmarking Enterprises and Competitors 2021-2025” released by Xinsi Industry Research Center, at present, China's ASA high rubber powder supply mainly includes domestic and imported parts. From the perspective of domestic production, in 2020, China's ASA high rubber powder industry capacity will reach 12,000 tons. There are a small number of large-scale ASA high rubber powder enterprises in China, mainly including Guangzhou Entropy energy, Anqiu Donghai Plastic Industry, Zibo Huaxing Auxiliary, Shandong Nuweida Chemical, Sichuan Zhongwu Materials and other enterprises, among which Guangzhou has a relatively high proportion of entropy energy capacity. In terms of imports, China has a high dependence on foreign countries for ASA high rubber powder, include Kumho, LG, Lotte, Techno-UMG and other enterprises.
The properties of ASA high rubber powder are similar to those of ABS high rubber powder, both of which have good mechanical properties, processing properties, electrical insulation, chemical resistance and dyeing properties. However, due to the introduction of acrylic rubber without double bonds in ASA high rubber powder, the weather resistance of ASA high rubber powder is much higher than that of ABS high rubber powder. The raw materials of ASA high rubber powder mainly include acrylonitrile, styrene, acrylate three kinds, its cost mainly depends on the price of these three basic raw materials. ASA high rubber powder is often used ASA toughening agent in plastic products, ASA resin, modified ASA, ASA alloy (such as PC/ASA alloy, PA/ASA alloy, PMMA/ASA alloy, PBT/ASA alloy) and other products production formula is one of the necessities.
The main production process of ASA resin is to mix ASA high rubber powder and SAN resin (styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer). In recent years, with the rapid development of China's economy, the market demand for ASA resin is continuously released, but limited by the shortage of raw material ASA high rubber powder supply, the current ASA resin production in China is still low. ASA resin produced with ASA high rubber powder has the advantages of high thermal deformation temperature, high melting index, good fluidity, and lower production cost. Therefore, the large-scale production of ASA high adhesive powder has a certain role in promoting the development of ASA resin industry.
Xinsi industry analysts said that at the present stage, the production capacity of ASA high rubber powder in China is low, some products are still dependent on imports, the future development potential of the industry is broad. ASA high powder is one of the important raw materials, production ASA and its related products in recent years, along with the rapid economic development of our country, ASA resin market demand increases, but restricted by ASA high powder are in short supply, ASA resin production in our country is low, the product import dependence degree is higher, and promotion of high ASA powder supply ability will help the development of ASA resin industry in China.
