SABIC debuts new PP compounds for foam injection molding, providing both light weight and exceptional aesthetics for automotive interiors

The front of an inner tailgate trim part that is foam injection molded with SABIC® PPc F9005 grade.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced a specialized portfolio of SABIC® PP compounds for foam injection molding (FIM). New mineral-reinforced SABIC® PPc F9005, PPc F9007 and PPc F9015 grades can help deliver excellent aesthetics for visible automotive interior parts with complex geometries, such as door panels and trim, seat and trunk cladding, A/B/C/D pillar covers and center consoles. Unlike standard FIM materials, which typically exhibit surface defects, the new advanced PP compounds feature uniformly high surface quality similar to solid injection molded parts. Compared to solid components, foamed parts made with SABIC PP compounds offer significant weight savings that can help cut emissions. According to a cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment study (pending third-party review), the advanced new materials can help OEMs lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by as much as 15 percent.
