SABIC’s new, breakthrough LNP COLORCOMP compound uses nanotechnology to enable differentiated foams

Graphs and images show cell analysis of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foam produced using conventional nucleating agents compared with PET foam produced using SABIC’s new LNP™ COLORCOMP™ compound. This new compound improves control over nucleation and cell growth, resulting in decreased cell size and uniform, narrower cell size distribution.SABIC today introduced LNP COLORCOMP WQ117945 compound, a breakthrough material based on advanced nanotechnology that facilitates efficient production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foams for core materials in sandwich structures. This new compound improves control over nucleation and cell growth, resulting in decreased cell size and uniform, narrower cell size distribution. These attributes can reduce the foam’s weight by minimizing resin uptake in sandwich structures. It can also potentially improve shear strength/strain properties for better fatigue performance. Enhancing PET foams with SABIC’s new LNP COLORCOMP compound can address the evolving needs of multiple industries, including marine, building and construction, packaging and wind energy.
