SABIC and partners introduce first in-mold labeling solution with certified renewable polymers for food packaging containers
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, has partnered with three specialists in the field of in-mold labeling (IML) to demonstrate the use of certified renewable polypropylene (PP) resins in high quality mono-PP thin-wall container packaging without compromising quality, processability, safety or convenience. The single-step IML technology achieves a seamless part decoration right in the injection mold, where the label becomes an integral component of the packaging itself. Dedicated label film types and high-definition printing technology result in a very attractive and cost-effective decorative solution. Besides using certified renewable PP resins for both the molded parts and the label film, the resulting packaging can be recycled in existing rigid PP recycling streams.

SABIC to present new data at PCIM Asia on low internal dissipation losses in ELCRES™ dielectric films for high-temp capacitors
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, will reveal at PCIM Asia 2023, in Booth #2B10, new data showing significantly reduced internal dissipation losses in its high-heat ELCRES™ HTV150A dielectric films for potential use in high-temperature capacitors. Compared to other high-heat materials like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polyethylene naphthalate (PEN), ELCRES HTV150A films can reduce dissipation losses by as much as 40 percent when exposed to temperatures reaching 150°C and frequencies up to 100kHz. Lower dissipation losses in ELCRES HTV150A dielectric films can reduce internal heat generation, increase operating efficiency, and stabilize hot spot temperatures, giving engineers in Asia Pacific greater flexibility in designing capacitors. Lower losses in these films are expected to translate into reduced dissipation losses in capacitors.
