SABIC high-performance, bio-based polycarbonate, carbon fibre reinforced compound with PIN FR package. The new compound offers reduced carbon footprint whilst meeting demanding technical and processability requirements for thin-wall injection moulding for applications such as electronics, electrical housings or healthcare, offering a drop-in replacement for incumbent materials. The compound uses 21% bio-based polymer (e.g. from vegetable oils) and over 50% post-consumer recycled resin, and pre-consumer recycled carbon fibres. The compound is halogen free and PIN flame retarded, achieving UL 94 V-0 @ 0.8 mm thickness.
