SABIC to launch at MD&M West 2023 new chemically resistant, thin-wall transparent LNP™ CRX copolymer resins that can help improve medical device durability & sustainability
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, will introduce at MD&M West 2023 two new LNP™ CRX polycarbonate (PC) copolymer resins offering a distinct combination of robust chemical and impact resistance, thin-wall transparency, dimensional stability and processability. In device applications such as clear covers, screens and display lenses, the new materials can overcome key drawbacks of incumbent PC resins and co-polyester resins when exposed to disinfectants or aggressive chemicals. Customers can choose LNP™ ELCRES™ CRX1314TW copolymer or its bio-based equivalent, LNP™ ELCRIN™ CRX1314BTW copolymer, which offers up to a 42 percent reduction in carbon footprint based on life cycle assessment (LCA). Both grades feature limited biocompatibility according to ISO 10993 and coverage under SABIC’s healthcare product policy, which provides stringent management of change processes. Since SABIC’s first LNP ELCRES CRX copolymer resins were introduced at MD&M West 2020, the continued market need for chemically resistant materials has driven the development of these innovative thin-wall transparent materials.

SABIC’S new ULTEM™ DT1820EV resin enables cost-effective stunning metallization to uplift consumer electronics designs
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today launched a new grade of ULTEM resin that can assist designers in elevating the styling and aesthetics of consumer electronics components while reducing costs by approximately 25 percent compared to metal. New ULTEM DT1820EV resin delivers a smooth, high-gloss finish that provides an exceptional surface for different decorative aesthetics: paint-free color, secondary painting or metallization using physical vapor deposition (PVD). To further improve the appearance, this polyetherimide (PEI) material features excellent surface hardness to help minimize scratches, and high modulus to help avoid PVD layer cracks. Its high flow enables complex, thin-wall geometries that support miniaturization and weight reduction. Potential applications include camera deco rings, smartphone touch panel frames and smartwatch frames.
