Sabic to Showcase Innovative Foam and Lightweight Products at Foam Expo
Sabic will be exhibiting its portfolio of innovative foam and lightweight solutions for the first time at Foam Expo North America from June 28 to 30 in Novi, MI. Sabic offers more than 20 foam products based on PP, EVA, PE, PS, and PU resins, as well as elastomers.
At booth 2702, Sabic will be showcasing a variety of end applications made using its foam and lightweight materials for the mobility, packaging, and construction markets. These include trunk liners, PP planks, and water shields made of Sabic’s PP-UMS resin, a new generation of ultra-melt strength and foamable polypropylene.
Sabic PP-UMS is unique in the market, with a melt strength of more than 65 cN leading to outstanding foamability, said the company. It is a building block to develop new foaming solutions that can enable lightweighting and potential cost optimization. Other applications to be showcased at the booth will highlight the value of Sabic resins applied in particle foams, foam injection molding, foam blow molding, and foam extrusion.
“Our knowledge and expertise in foam technologies and markets, and in-depth understanding of the value chain and its needs, has been translated into one of the broadest resin portfolios in the industry,” said Abdullah Al-Otaibi, ETP & Market Solution General Manager at Sabic. The company’s business with leading global brand owners is growing from year to year, supported by dedicated, global Foam Innovation Centers.
