SABIC’s new Ultem™ film UTF120 offers solutions for professional-grade dielectric film capacitors

Capacitors are ubiquitous in electrical products, and have many uses in electronic applications and electrical systems. To address the growing need for lightweight, compact, high energy density capacitors able to store large amounts of electrical energy for long periods of time without significant current leakage and loss of charge even at high temperatures, SABIC is launching a new polyetherimide (PEI) film - ULTEM™ film UTF120.

ULTEM™ film UTF120 is a high heat and high energy density dielectric film that meets the most stringent technical demands for use in professional-grade dielectric film capacitors.

ULTEM™ film UTF120 exhibits stable properties through a range of temperatures (-40°C to +150°C) and frequency, including stable capacitance, good insulation resistance, high dielectric constant (Dk) and low dissipation factor (Df). The wide operating temperature capability of ULTEM™ film UTF120 based capacitors increases reliability and reduces or even eliminates the need for active cooling for converter applications.

“The successful commercialization of ULTEM™ film UTF120 has enabled SABIC to enter the high temperature film capacitor market. Eliminating the need for active cooling will enable our customers to have a simpler and more flexible system design in electric vehicle application. This is also a stepping stone towards next-generation dielectric film products, and provides translation opportunities for ultra-thin film to other application areas,” said Dr. Alan Tsai, Director, High Performance Forms, Specialties, SABIC.

ULTEM™ film UTF120 has excellent metal adhesion, enjoys high temperature dimensional and mechanical stability and is inherently flame retardant. Capacitors using ULTEM™ film UTF120 are capable of passing industry-standard 260oC reflow soldering processes.

Developed to offer excellent handling through metallization, capacitor winding and flattening, it is processable on existing equipment and has been validated with both film-foil and metalized electrodes including flat and tapered metalized electrode designs as well as patterned electrodes.

Potential applications include in automotive components such as DC/DC converters, electrical compressors and high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting, in electronics such as LED lighting and LCD backlight, and film capacitors for mass transportation and renewable energy.

SABIC is a global leader in diversified chemicals headquartered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We manufacture on a global scale in the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific, making distinctly different kinds of products: chemicals, commodity and high performance plastics, agri-nutrients and metals.

We support our customers by identifying and developing opportunities in key end markets such as construction, medical devices, packaging, agri-nutrients, electrical and electronics, transportation and clean energy.

SABIC recorded a net profit of SR 17.8 billion (US$ 4.8 billion) in 2016. Sales revenues for 2016 totaled SR 132.8 billion (US$ 35.4 billion). Total assets stood at SR 316.9 billion (US$ 84.5 billion) at the end of 2016. Production in 2016 stood at 72.7 million metric tons

SABIC has more than 35,000 employees worldwide and operates in more than 50 countries. Fostering innovation and a spirit of ingenuity, we have 12,191 global patent filings, and have significant research resources with innovation hubs in five key geographies – USA, Europe, Middle East, South East Asia and North East Asia.

The Saudi Arabian government owns 70 percent of SABIC shares with the remaining 30 percent publicly traded on the Saudi stock exchange.
