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.
