SABIC launches at NPE 2018 new formable hard-coated LEXAN™ MARGARD™ FHC sheet for glazing applications to comply with updated ECE R43 safety regulation
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, May 17, 2018 - SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, introduced here today at NPE 2018, booth S19001, LEXAN™ MARGARD™ FHC10 sheet, the latest addition to the company’s expanding automotive glazing portfolio. This advanced new technology is engineered to comply with the stringent visibility, strength and abrasion resistance requirements of ECE R43 (Regulation No. 43 of the Economic Commission for Europe of the United Nations). It features a tough polycarbonate (PC) base with exceptional optical quality, combined with a unique, formable hard coating that is pre-cured sufficiently to allow processing like regular PC sheet. In addition to ECE R43 compliance, LEXAN™ MARGARD™ FHC10 sheet can enable customers to avoid post-coating operations, and gives automotive OEMs and tiers a fresh new option for creating simple, curved glazing designs.

SABIC unveils at NPE 2018 first successful micromolding of IR optical sensor lenses using high-performance EXTEM™ resin
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, May 11, 2018 - SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, unveiled today at NPE 2018, booth S19001, a major breakthrough in the production of infrared (IR) optical sensor lenses for proximity sensing and gesture recognition in smartphones and other electronics applications using its EXTEM™ thermoplastic polyimide (TPI) resin. SOPROD SA, a Swiss molding company, selected the high-performance SABIC material, which features IR transparency, to mass-produce sensor lenses using micromolding with a multi-cavity tool. Efficient, high-volume molding of EXTEM™ resin can deliver multiple advantages over grinding and polishing of quartz glass and curing of epoxy resin. These benefits can include speed, consistently high quality and the avoidance of costly secondary operations. SOPROD’s achievement offers the electronics industry a new and highly efficient solution to meet accelerating demand for IR optical sensors.
