SABIC® PC Resin Offers Water Clear Transparency and Excellent Mechanical, Optical, Electrical and Thermal Performance

GUANGZHOU, China – May 17, 2011 – Here at Chinaplas 2011, Booth 10.2E21, the Innovative Plastics strategic business unit of SABIC today announced the addition of SABIC® PC resin to its already expansive polycarbonate (PC) offering, reaffirming the company’s polycarbonate industry leadership. The new transparent PC resin features the same outstanding product quality that customers have come to expect from Innovative Plastics and is targeted for high-volume extrusion, custom compounding, general purpose and optical-quality applications. The material is manufactured at SABIC’s SAUDI KAYAN PC facility in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia and will be used to supply the fast growing Asia market, as well as the Middle East and Europe. This new product will enable Innovative Plastics to provide customers with the broader range of PC resins they require for steady business growth and expansion.

Since being one of the first inventors of PC nearly 60 years ago, Innovative Plastics’ PC portfolio has evolved into the industry’s most expansive, including Lexan* PC sheet and film, PC blends that offer additional performance properties and design freedom, PC compounds for specialty performance, and Lexan PC copolymers which add new and unique dimensions to the material’s already superior properties. The long heritage of innovation and consistent product quality has made Lexan resin one of the world’s most trusted and preferred PC brands.

“Building on our global polycarbonate success, the addition of SABIC PC reaffirms our continuing commitment to the polycarbonate industry as we keep pace with the growing markets and our customers’ expanding needs,” said William Russell, polycarbonate business leader, Innovative Plastics. “We are proud of our position as a world-leading producer of polycarbonate, reflecting our 80 years as an innovator in the engineering thermoplastics industry.”
