SABIC has launched its latest LNP VISUALFX resin portfolio featuring unique colors and special effects from the company’s new Expression 2021/2022 color palette, developed through research on emerging aesthetic trends.

 

Designers and engineers in the Color, Material and Finish (CMF) field can find inspiration within this portfolio from the consumer preferences revealed through this research, for new 5G-enabled mobile devices and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. SABIC’s complete color offering also includes global COLORXPRESS custom color and color matching services.

 

SABIC’s LNP VISUALFX resins are formulated with the rich color and effect inherent in the pellet, enabling customers to create colorful and distinctive parts while avoiding the environmental impact, time and costs of secondary painting.

SABIC introduces latest LNP VISUALFX resin portfolio.


Communicating the themes from the company’s Expression 2021/2022 program, the new LNP VISUALFX portfolio captures the look and feel of today’s hottest design trends. The six Expression 2021/2022 themes are:

 

Time’s Echo – Retro colors characterized by medium brightness and high chroma evoke nostalgia, creating a link between the past and the present.

 

Iridescence – Ethereal rainbow colors and delicate luster produce futuristic and surreal impressions.

 

Sweet Neon – Fluorescent colors generate a sense of energy and excitement. They help product designs stand out on screen and in real life.

 

Moment – Rich, classic hues elicit feelings of calmness. Metallic textures complement and enhance both dark and light colors.

 

Re-Blossom – Medium-bright, high chroma colors convey joyfulness and friendliness.

 

Natural Therapies – Soft hues reminiscent of natural landscapes counter the coldness of technology. These colors lend themselves to sustainable, recyclable materials.

They can be enhanced with different special effects.


Each of the Expression themes encompass six colors, which can be enhanced with a variety of special effects, from Luster to Sparkle to Illuminate (edge glow) and more.

 

The Re-Blossom and Natural Therapies themes are offered in sustainable materials. Re-Blossom grades include a compound based on polycarbonate (PC) resins with post-consumer recycle (PCR) content; an impact-modified, non-halogenated flame-retardant polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (PC/ABS) blend containing PCR; and an upcycled polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) compound containing SABIC’s LNP ELCRIN iQ resin.

 

LNP ELCRIN iQ resins are produced by chemically upcycling consumer-discarded polyethylene terephthalate (PET) water bottles into higher-value PBT materials. Natural Therapies products include PC/siloxane copolymer resins with good impact and up to 80% PCR content.

 

Besides, LNP VISUALFX materials deliver very good performance. For instance, EXL copolymers feature high impact resistance, making them appropriate for consideration in applications such as housings and decorative parts for consumer electronics and home appliances, cosmetic packaging and automotive interior trim components. SABIC’s SLX copolymers offer high chemical and scratch resistance in addition to impact strength.
