SABIC has identified foaming and lightweighting as an important focus area.
SABIC has identified "foaming and lightweighting" as an important focus area.

SABIC said that its two new foam grades, SABIC LDPE HP2024JDF and HP2024NDF, launched at CHNAPLAS 2016 for Middle East, African, and Asian markets for physical extrusion foam, have been successfully adopted in the market.

It is therefore additionally launching a new dedicated foam grade, SABIC LDPE HP0824NDF, in the beginning of 2017, to broaden the application window for the tapes, seals and underlayment market.

SABIC LDPE HP0824NDF offers special benefits using various foam production processes such as physical foam extrusion, the chemical cross-linking process, as well as the bun process resulting in lightweight foams, according to the company.

Advantages include high viscosity, giving good head pressure for uniform and thicker foam thickness, relatively higher resin density for better mechanical strength, and good compression stress as well as resilience.

The new dedicated foam grades were developed in the recently opened Foam Innovation Center. It is equipped with most foam processing capabilities, as well as analytical equipment, enabling SABIC to carry out developments on new foam solutions, technology innovations, and collaborative projects with customers, to reduce material footprint, enable energy and cost reductions, and decrease time to market.
