SABIC’s Ultem™ and Noryl™ resins and LNP™ Copolymers and compounds offer a range of materials fulfilling the stringent fire safety requirements under EN 45534-2. Properties such as low temperature ductility, transparency, enhanced weatherability, chemical resistance and thin wall design capability can also be offered.
A pioneer in compounding technologies, the LNP product brand has a string of important technological achievements behind it.
A product line with an impressive list of accomplishments to its name, the era of reinforced thermoplastics was launched when the first fully dispersed short fiber reinforced compounds were introduced in the 1960s. In the 1980s, patented pultruded long fiber reinforced technology was added to open the age of LFRTs. Earlier, in the 1970s, the world’s first carbon fiber reinforced compounds were developed, in addition to the first statically conductive compounds. A year later EMI/RFI shielding compounds were launched and today the product line reflects important patents covering EMI/RFI shielding, in addition to several patents on wear resistance without the need for PTFE.
Scientists and technologists behind the LNP portfolio continue to push the limits of technical performance, solving new challenges on a regular basis, while remaining committed to provide unique offerings and help create value for our customers.
