SABIC thermoplastic materials at forefront of aircraft manufacturing

SABIC is featuring a thermoforming tool for an aircraft interior panel, printed on a Thermwood LSAM® machine using LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ AM EC004XXAR1 compound, a material based on ULTEM™ resin with 20 percent carbon fiber reinforcement.Airlines are seeking competitive advantages to be gained from the enhanced inflight experience - particularly in the form of increased cabin comfort - both in premium and economy classes. Additionally, airlines are looking to capitalize on product differentiation through strong branding and distinctive interior design. From an operational perspective, the ‘light weighting’ of aircraft components continues to be an important enabler in allowing airlines to minimize costs and reduce maintenance and refurbishment cycles, while maintaining the highest levels of safety excellence, design flexibility and improved passenger experience. Advanced thermoplastic composites are now an important solution for such applications.

SABIC launches advanced breakaway support filament aimed to improve productivity for part manufacturers

Automotive oil pump printed with SABIC’s ULTEM™ AM9085F filament and new AMS31F support filament. SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced the launch of AMS31F filament, the company’s breakaway support material for fused deposition modeling. The new filament maintains rigidity during printing and provides exceptional pliability during post processing to enable easier removal of scaffolding at room temperature, which can help reduce the time required to produce finished parts. The new AMS31F filament is for use with SABIC’s ULTEM AM9085F filament, a high-performance polyetherimide (PEI) material that provides high heat resistance and mechanical strength which are optimal properties for potential aerospace applications, as well as for automotive, oil and gas and tooling applications.
