SABIC debuts at Automotive Tech Week 2021, colorable, PTFE-free LNP LUBRILOY N2000 compound to reduce BSR noise

SABIC’s new LNP™ LUBRILOY™ N2000 compound is a colorable, internally lubricated material that helps prevent buzz-squeak-rattle (BSR) noise in automotive interiors, such as mirror housings and trim, cupholders, button guides and heating-ventilation-air conditioning (HVAC) frames.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, launched today at Automotive Tech Week 2021 LNP LUBRILOY N2000 compound, a new internally lubricated material that helps prevent buzz-squeak-rattle (BSR) noise in automotive interiors. Showcased here at the company’s booth (#330), the new LNP compound is based on an amorphous blend and offers both molded-in color capability and paintability. The proprietary, compatibilized olefinic alloy is free of silicone and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). By replacing standard PC/ABS with this innovative, drop-in material, automotive OEMs and tiers can significantly reduce friction and stick-slip behavior between molded parts to limit or prevent unwanted noise.
