SABIC adds unique PP Ultra Melt Strength resin to its global foam portfolio.
SABIC adds unique PP Ultra Melt Strength resin to its global foam portfolio.

SABIC has added to its foam portfolio with the launch of SABIC PP-UMS (Ultra Melt Strength) resin – a completely new generation of melt strength polypropylenes (PP).

This is a unique resin in the market, with a melt strength of more than 65cN and outstanding foam-ability. It can be used by all industry segments as a building block to develop new foaming solutions for superior light-weighting possibilities in automotive, packaging and building & construction markets, according to the company.

"Looking to the future of light weighting, we see that foaming is a key technology to push the boundaries and create even more down gauging opportunities in the industry. For this reason, our global teams are busy developing the next generation of foam-able resin solutions for the market. These solutions can be used in many processing technologies to best meet the unmet needs of the value chain," said Frank de Vries, SABIC's global Foam & Lightweight Leader.

The new SABIC PP-UMS material has been evaluated and optimized for foaming at SABIC's Foam Innovation Center (FIC) in the Netherlands.

"We all face many global challenges due to an ever-growing population and increasingly limited resources. Foaming is key to help solving these challenges, by pushing industries to invest in solutions that are both sustainable and cost-efficient, with enhanced material properties," said de Vries.
