SABIC expands portfolio of ULTEM™ UTF120 film for high-temperature dielectric capacitors with new 7- and 10-micron gauges 

SABIC’s new 7µm and 10µm (micron) ULTEM™ UTF120 polyetherimide (PEI) dielectric film grades further expand the company’s portfolio. They enable the design of lightweight, compact, high energy density capacitors that can store large amounts of electrical energy for long periods without significant current leakage or loss of charge at high temperatures. This technology offers important advantages for capacitor applications, such as high dielectric constant and insulation resistance and low dielectric loss.BERGEN OP ZOOM, THE NETHERLANDS, June 6, 2018 - SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, is introducing at PCIM (Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion) Europe 2018, in booth #6-138, two new gauges of ULTEM™ UTF120 polyetherimide (PEI) dielectric film for high-temperature, professional-grade capacitor applications. These new additions of 7µm and 10µm (micron) thicknesses to SABIC’s industry-leading portfolio of ULTEM™ UTF120 film respond to customers’ requirements for film that can meet the voltage requirements of different capacitors and open the door for new design options. PCIM Europe is held in Nuremberg, Germany from 5 - 7 June 2018.
