Folks,
I would be interested on views as to the use of either uPVC or UV stabilised ABS for a glass frame strip on a glass panelled PVC door skin. I am currently working with my customer on designing the interior frame strip and we are debating as to which material to run with. The most popular colour for the application will be white. Could I reiterate that the frame strip is on the inside of the door and the target market area is subject to UK / Ireland weather conditions. Any experiences/views appreciated.

Regards

I would recommend ASA, it is proven to last many years outdoors without degradation or colour change. It is used in window profiles, sidings and doors as well as exterior plastic parts for cars. ABS contains butadiene so it will degrade and yellow even when UV stabilised. ASA contains a stable acrylate rubber instead of butadiene and therefore will not yellow or degrade.
