Ineos Styrolution material selected for Guzzini’s Venice glassware

FRANKFURT, GERMANY: Ineos Styrolution said that its NAS 30 material has been selected for Fratelli Guzzini’s Venice product line. Sparkling clarity, flowability, ease of processing and scratch resistance are some of the key properties of NAS 30, an SMMA (styrene-methyl-methacrylate) grade.

Fratelli Guzzini, a world leader in tableware and household appliances, is known for elegant designs and the use of innovative materials. For their latest series of glassware Venice, Ineos Styrolution’s NAS 30 has become the material of choice.

The Venice collection consists of glasses of different sizes, cups, a fruit bowl, a pitcher, a sugar pot and a tray. According to Guzzini, the glassware is “clear, shiny and bright as crystal”. The quality of the Venice collection is so convincing that a leading Italian retail company runs a special promotion on it celebrating its own significant anniversary.

NAS 30, a styrene acrylic copolymer, does not only deliver that sparkling clarity. Due to its low density, NAS 30 also contributes to the lightness of the glasses.

NAS 30 meets USP XXIII specifications for Class VI plastics and it is UL 94 HB approved making it ideal for drinkware – and even for much more demanding solutions like e.g. medical devices. It is compliant with food contact regulations and it received the drinking water approval W270.

“We selected NAS 30 since its clarity is really amazing. Also, it is nicely suiting our moulding processes”, said Lorenzo Mandolesi, plant manager and general operation director at Guzzini.

“I am very pleased about our long-standing relationship with Guzzini. Our relationship proves very well that close cooperation allows for positive synergies and makes optimized solutions possible,” added Artur Sokolowski, sales director household & electronics EMEA at Ineos Styrolution.
