SABIC announces the upcoming launch of LNP™ ELCRES™ FST copolymers for rail interior wall panels, featuring EN 45545 compliance and custom colorability
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced the upcoming launch of LNP™ ELCRES™ FST2734E copolymer, a flame-smoke-toxicity extrusion grade that is well-suited for wall and ceiling panels in passenger trains, subways and trams. Customers can benefit from this new specialty material, which complies with the European railway standard for fire safety, EN 45545 R1-HL2, and meets key rail OEM requirements: high modulus for durability, molded-in custom color for paint elimination and branding, ultraviolet (UV) resistance to help minimize yellowing and chemical resistance to facilitate cleaning removal without causing environmental stress cracking (ESC). As a thermoplastic, LNP ELCRES FST2734E copolymer offers customers distinct advantages over stamped metals and thermoset resins, such as expanded design freedom, system cost reduction, up to 20 percent less weight for easier maintenance and the potential for easier recyclability.

SABIC introduces new LNP™ ELCRES™ FST copolymer resins for rail seating, compliant with EN45545 standard
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, launched today four new LNP™ ELCRES™ FST copolymer resins that comply with the European railway standard EN45545 R6-HL 2 for train seating. Designers can benefit from these new material solutions, which not only meet the new regulatory requirements but also provide expanded opportunities to create sleek seating designs. Compared to thermosets and aluminum, the new ELCRES resins offer lighter weight and efficient processing without requiring secondary operations. To achieve a seamless aesthetic look in an all-in-one seat unit or a design with a separate back shell without painting, SABIC offers precision color matching for its extrusion grade (LNP ELCRES FST2732E resin) and injection molding grade (LNP ELCRES FST2432 resin). For customers that require more-sustainable solutions, SABIC supplies bio-based version of each grade. These new materials, and several other new products, will be spotlighted at InnoTrans 2022 (Hall 5.1, Booth 332), September 20-23 in Berlin, Germany.

SABIC to debut at InnoTrans a new EN45545 rail-compliant additive manufacturing solution to help advance the transportation industry
SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, will introduce at InnoTrans 2022 in Berlin, Germany, LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ AM DC0041XA51 compound, a novel carbon fiber-reinforced, flame-retardant (FR) compound well-suited for pellet-fed additive manufacturing (PFAM) that complies with E.U. and U.S. rail fire safety standards. The innovative new compound can help the rail industry advance from building traditional tools for part production from thermosets to utilizing on demand 3D printing which can potentially lower system costs by reducing inventory levels of large tools and replacement parts.
