By blending an acrylate rubber
with the styrene-acrylonitrile rigid phase, to give acrylic-styrene-acrylonitrile (ASA), the weathering resistance is greatly improved, while retaining the other attractive properties of ABS--toughness, high gloss finish, friendly processing and low mould shrinkage.
The former peak is attributed to the [alpha] relaxation of the acrylate rubber
and latter peak is due to the [alpha] relaxation of the unmodified epoxy.
Use of mineral filler and acrylate rubber
modifiers has successfully produced a high-impact, fast-cycle crystalline matrix product.
The acrylate rubber
(AR) rolls  stretched by an internally-loaded spring was found to be compact with high electroelastomer- to-structure weight ratio and combining load bearing, actuation, and sensing capabilities.
Initial grades will be based' on acrylate rubber
dispersed in nylon and/or TP polyester matrixes.

Other products available here as imports from Germany are a TPE-O line based on PP modified with acrylate rubber
. These grades are designed for good oil resistance at moderate temperatures.
Dynamic viscoelastic properties and dynamic mechanical properties of blends of acrylate rubber
(ACM), fluoroelastomer and polyacrylate plastics have been investigated with a rheometer (ARES RDA III) at a frequency [omega] range of 0.1 to [100 rad.s.sub.-1]).
Rubbers studied include natural rubber, styrene butadiene rubber, butyl rubber, polychloroprene, nitrile rubber, acrylate rubber
, chlorosulfonated polyethylene, polysulfide rubber and silicone rubber.
