The company will feature a broad range of high-performance and sustainable products for the Mexican market for industries ranging from automotive, appliances, and building and construction to aerospace, electrical, transportation, and emerging sectors.
SABIC Innovative Plastics' high-performance materials technologies that will be on display include:
- STAMAX composite, long fiber structural materials, offering three key advantages: a density that is typically 10 - 25 percent lower than traditional materials and hence lighter weight; a better surface finish than short glass fiber products which enables molded in color solutions; and a 10 -15 percent potential reduction in cycle times.
- Cycolac* ABS resin, manufactured at SABIC Innovative Plastics' Tampico, Mexico facility providing ultraviolet (UV) resistance to outdoor lighting applications, and enhanced flame retardance to electrical applications such as washing machine laundry covers, and control panel housings.
- Ultem PEI resin-based structural composites for aircraft bins and floorings; Ultem foams for lightweight cores; and Ultem fibers for carpets and fabrics.
