SABIC’S new SMT-capable ULTEM™ 3473 resin helps reduce weight of RF filters in 5G macro cells by up to 40%

Top and bottom views of an antenna filter unit (AFU) drawing using SABIC’s new ULTEM™ 3473 resin.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced ULTEM™ 3473 resin, its first polyetherimide (PEI)-based material with surface mount technology (SMT) capability. This new product addresses the growing trend toward smaller, lighter 5G macro cells by providing a possible replacement for metal. For example, ULTEM 3473 resin can help reduce the weight of an aluminum radio frequency (RF) cavity filter by up to 40 percent. In a typical macro cell with 64 filters, this weight saving can be significant. Furthermore, this new resin can help facilitate the design of new, integrated antenna filter units (AFUs), which is not achievable with metal. Using injection molding, the dipole antenna matrix and RF cavity filter body can be produced as one piece. This approach simplifies production and may lead to additional weight savings and system cost reductions.

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.

SABIC’s new NORYL™ resin offers exceptional CTI and FR properties for ultra-thin-wall insulation film in high-voltage EV batteries

SABIC’s new NORYL™ NHP8000VT3 resin is well suited for insulation film used in electric vehicle (EV) battery modules to increase protection against short circuits and fire propagation.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced NORYL™ NHP8000VT3 resin, a product well suited for insulation film used in electric vehicle (EV) battery modules to help improve protection against short circuits and fire propagation. This high-performance, polyphenylene ether (PPO)-based resin is engineered with patented technologies to help meet the stringent demands of higher-voltage batteries (600-800 volts). It achieves the highest comparative tracking index performance level category (CTI PLC0), provides ultra-thin-wall extrusion and thermoforming capability, and meets the UL94 V0 standard at 0.25 mm with non-brominated, non-chlorinated flame retardance. NORYL NHP8000VT3 resin provides a novel solution to the drawbacks of incumbent insulation films made with polycarbonate (PC) and polypropylene (PP) by delivering stronger CTI performance and thinner-wall FR capability. This exceptional material can help advance EV battery technology by contributing to occupant safety, weight reduction and higher efficiency for extended range.
