Jinfeng Zhuge, SABIC – SABIC’s customers are looking for PIN flame retardant (FR) solutions, especially in the market segments of Mass Transportation, Consumer Electronics, and E&E. SABIC offers a portfolio of innovative FR solutions, specific to the regulatory and customer requirements of various different industries sectors.
As an example, some of SABIC’s thermoplastic resin solutions meet the stringent fire safety requirements under the CEN/TS 45445 and NFPA 130 standards. Material suppliers and FR suppliers need to stay actively involved in regulatory and standards development affecting fire safety requirements to ensure that these requirements reflect real-life applications. Many SABIC customers have asked us to try to push the existing boundaries in flame retardant thin wall solutions. Challenges are often seen when these thin wall FR parts need to also balance other requirements, which could include properties such as impact resistance, chemical resistance, and transparency. This AMI conference enabled SABIC to connect with FR suppliers and to see new developments in PIN FR solutions.
