XIRAN® compounds

XIRAN® compounds can be impact and glass reinforced modified SMA copolymers. The glass reinforced series XIRAN® SG grades are widely used in the automotive industry providing an excellent property profile for structural parts such as instrument panels (IP), carriers, and trims. XIRAN® SM grades are impact modified as well, but do not contain glass fibers, making them ideally suited for aesthetical applications requiring a smooth surface. Furthermore we supply XIRAN® SE grades, these compounds are optimized for sheet extrusion.

Our XIRAN® compounds provide:

  • Excellent long term heat ageing properties
  • Best in class paint and foam adhesion
  • High precision molding with excellent shot-to-shot consistency
  • Good chemical resistance
  • High strength and stiffness
  • High thermal resistance
  • Recyclable

Your Benefits

  • High precision molding means lower waste and cost
  • New design opportunities and reduced weight
  • Reduced need for metal reinforcements
  • No flame treatment necessary
  • Reduced cycle times and cost

XIRAN® solutions

Styrene maleic anhydride resins are hydrophobic but they can be easily hydrolyzed in caustic solutions giving aqueous anionic salt solutions. When dried, sodium and potassium salts demonstrate hydrophilic properties and as a result they are appreciated in water removable applications. On the other hand, the hydrophobic behavior of ammonium salt solutions after drying is valued for every application where water resistance is needed.

Polyscope supplies hydrolyzed styrene maleic anhydride copolymers as sodium, potassium and ammonium salt solutions under the brand name XIRAN® SL. These are low viscosity, low VOC, freeze-thaw stable solutions with high dry solid content.XIRAN® SL grades can be used as dispersants in the following applications: pigments, inks and coatings, paraffin wax emulsions, adhesives and paper sizing.

Moreover, styrene maleic anhydride hydrolyzed solutions (XIRAN® SL) have good adhesion to glass and are compatible with natural materials like starch and soya proteins. They are used to improve performance of other systems such as Phenol-Formaldehyde, Urea-Formaldehyde, Melamine Formaldehyde systems or other type of no added formaldehyde systems.

Styrene maleic anhydride copolymers are also available as fully formulated, ready-to-use, thermosetting binder systems which can be used in many applications such as glass/stonewool insulation, automotive insulation and glass fiber mats for non- woven applications such as vinyl flooring, ceiling tiles, roofing shingles. Other applications include filtration media and backing of gypsum boards. These thermosetting binder systems are no added formaldehyde binder systems used as an alternative to acrylic and phenolic resins exhibiting good wet strength as well as excellence moisture resistance and strength after curing.

About us

Company details

Polyscope is the global leader in research, product development, production and supply of styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymers, compounds, aqueous solutions and styrene, maleic anhydride and N-phenylmaleimide (SMANPMI) terpolymers.

Polyscope offers a full spectrum of SMA and SMANPMI copolymers and compounds for engineering plastic and specialty chemical applications under the trade names XIRAN® and XIBOND™. The XIRAN® resins and XIBOND™ blend optimizers have a very broad molar mass range and a broad maleic anhydride variation. For engineering plastics the SMA/ABS based compounds have varying impact modification levels and glass fiber content. For specialty chemical applications Polyscope offers low molecular weight XIRAN® base resins and solutions that are chemically modified to meet customer needs.

Create a sustainable and environmentally sound growing company through safety, trust and empowerment via an entrepreneurial culture and establish international recognition as a downstream styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) specialty and compound supplier.

We as Polyscope focus our actions on the areas where we can make a meaningful difference. We give our employees the freedom to explore and develop the full potential of SMA and themselves, building knowledge and strong customer relations by helping customers and business partners where all others stop. All this is contributing to our vision of building strong sustainable partnerships and being a solution provider offering our SMA products and derivatives.
