SABIC expands water management portfolio with new NORYL resin combining increased fluctuating pressure performance and cost-effectiveness

SABIC’s new NORYL™ WM330G resin, available globally, benefits customers by delivering higher burst pressure, fluctuating pressure and creep rupture performance to meet more-aggressive qualification testing in applications such as ultrasonic water meters, instant water heaters and pump housings, as well as control valves and hydro blocks. SABIC’s water hammer testing protocol has determined that NORYL WM330G resin can deliver up to a two-fold (2X) improvement in fluctuating pressure performance compared to legacy grades and is an especially good candidate for complex designs that prevent optimal cooling during processing. Hot spots can lead to vulnerabilities in the finished part; however, the new SABIC material helps to addresses this challenge and gives designers greater freedom to create more intricate geometries. SABIC today announced the launch of NORYL WM330G resin, the latest addition to its portfolio of high-performance thermoplastics for water management applications. The new product is the first in a family of materials featuring proprietary impact-resistant technology for improved fluctuating pressure performance compared to legacy materials. The 30 percent glass-reinforced polyphenylene ether (PPE)-based grade also delivers excellent value through system cost-effectiveness and compliance with relevant global drinking water regulations.

SABIC debuts at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019 paintable LNP LUBRICOMP compounds to reduce buzz, squeak and rattle

SABIC’s two new LNP™ LUBRICOMP™ compounds were developed to help mitigate buzz, squeak and rattle (BSR) noises in vehicle cabins.SABIC is introducing here today at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019 (Booth #A118) two new LNP LUBRICOMP compounds, developed to help mitigate buzz, squeak and rattle (BSR) noises in vehicle cabins. These injection moldable compounds, a polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS) grade and a polycarbonate/acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (PC/ASA) grade, provide a low-gloss finish to meet general preferences for automotive interior decorative parts. Compared to silicone lubricants, which have the potential to leach out and interfere with paint adhesion, and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) lubricants, which can limit paint choices, the new products feature a proprietary internal lubrication technology and deliver excellent paintability.
