SABIC launches NORYL™ polyol for cast polyurethanes, simultaneously increasing hardness and elasticity to help extend the life of industrial applications
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced NORYL™ AP2001G polyol for cast polyurethane (PU) applications. By partially replacing polypropylene glycol (PPG) or polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMG), this oligomer of polyphenylene ether (PPE) improves the performance of cast PU systems by increasing both hardness and elasticity – properties that have been difficult to improve simultaneously until now. In addition, NORYL AP2001G polyol provides resistance to oils, moisture, abrasion, tearing and heat, helping cast PU parts withstand extreme conditions and potentially lengthen their useful life. Potential applications include mining drill bits, screens and protective pipe liners for slurry transport; components for hydraulic, robotic and conveying equipment; and wheels, casters and rollers.

SABIC’s new LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ compounds deliver exceptional warpage control, laser welding capability allowing design freedom for improved signal transmission for ADAS radar covers
As urbanization propels the development of self-driving technology and broader implementation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automotive OEMs and tiers are actively seeking high-performance materials that can optimize the capabilities of today’s higher-frequency (>75 GHz), millimeter-wave (mmWave) radar units. To help meet this need, SABIC is launching two new materials, LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ WFC06I and WFC06IXP compounds, developed for the front and back enclosure covers (respectively) of next-generation radar units. The new glass fiber-reinforced polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) grades offer a very low dissipation factor (Df) and dielectric constant (Dk) to help support the transmission of higher-frequency radar signals. They also feature super-low warpage that allows designers to potentially create new, thinner covers that improve signal transmission. Furthermore, these new SABIC products can contribute to efficient radar unit assembly by supporting high-speed, high-precision laser welding. In fact, LNP THERMOCOMP WFC06I compound provides excellent laser transmission performance among PBT materials currently available.
