SABIC debuts at Automotive Tech Week 2021, colorable, PTFE-free LNP LUBRILOY N2000 compound to reduce BSR noise

SABIC’s new LNP™ LUBRILOY™ N2000 compound is a colorable, internally lubricated material that helps prevent buzz-squeak-rattle (BSR) noise in automotive interiors, such as mirror housings and trim, cupholders, button guides and heating-ventilation-air conditioning (HVAC) frames.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, launched today at Automotive Tech Week 2021 LNP LUBRILOY N2000 compound, a new internally lubricated material that helps prevent buzz-squeak-rattle (BSR) noise in automotive interiors. Showcased here at the company’s booth (#330), the new LNP compound is based on an amorphous blend and offers both molded-in color capability and paintability. The proprietary, compatibilized olefinic alloy is free of silicone and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). By replacing standard PC/ABS with this innovative, drop-in material, automotive OEMs and tiers can significantly reduce friction and stick-slip behavior between molded parts to limit or prevent unwanted noise.

SABIC’S new NORYL polyol improves performance of MDI-BDO cast polyurethanes and offers alternative to TDI-MOCA cured systems

SABIC’s new NORYL™ AP2001G aromatic polyol can enhance hardness and toughness performance of MDI-BDO cast polyurethanes at high temperatures up to 70°C, which potentially allows MDI-BDO cast PU to be used in extreme conditions, such as for oil and gas exploration, gasketing and mining applications.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced that its recently launched NORYL™ AP2001G aromatic polyol can significantly improve the performance of hot cast polyurethanes (PUs) based on methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMG). By boosting the hardness, toughness and stiffness properties of cast PU by double digits, NORYL AP2001G polyol can enable MDI formulations cured with 1,4-butanediol (BDO) to deliver equivalent or better performance compared to toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and PTMG PU formulations cured with MOCA (4,4'-methylene bis(ortho-chloroaniline)).
