Sabic to boost composite resins

To meet rapidly growing demand from automotive customers, US-based Sabic Innovative Plastics is boosting capacity for its Stamax long glass fibre-filled polypropylene (LGFPP) composite resins at its facility in Genk, Belgium, with the new production line slated to open in the H2 2013.

Stamaxx LGFPP composite resins feature a combination of properties, including light weight to provide the potential to improve fuel efficiency and cut emissions. The composite resin can result in up to 44% lower energy footprint compared to a PA hybrid alternative from material sourcing through the end of product life, mostly as a result of the weight savings during vehicle use. The resins are also available to customers from Sabicís Bay St. Louis, Mississippi site in the US.
