SABIC’s new random copolymer polypropylene combines conversion efficiency with outstanding transparency
July 27, 2009
SABIC proudly introduces SABIC® PP 673K: a new random copolymer polypropylene (PP) offering value for money by combining outstanding transparency with improved conversion efficiency. SABIC® PP 673K demonstrates that SABIC is developing and expanding its polypropylene portfolio continuously; designing innovative and value-adding solutions that meet the critical challenges of the Injection Molding market.
Due to its low temperature processing capabilities, SABIC® PP 673K reduces the cycle times as well as the overall energy consumption. This results in a more efficient and economically improved conversion. Especially in medium to thick wall section parts, SABIC® PP 673K is maintaining its outstanding transparency featuring exceptional low haze and yellowing. "To secure their market position, brand owners demand cost reducing solutions as well as eye-catching aesthetics. SABIC® PP 673K is our direct response to these key differentiators," said Diederik Goyvaerts, Technical Marketing Engineer. SABIC’s new 25MFI random copolymer PP is particularly suited for application in transparent housewares, office & home storage boxes, food storage containers and caps & closures.
The launch of SABIC® PP 673K demonstrates SABIC’s strong commitment to the Injection Molding market. "At SABIC we continuously work to support our customers in meeting their increasingly demanding challenges. In line with our strategy – becoming the preferred leader in chemicals - we will continue to expand our product portfolio with new grades. SABIC invests in the future – despite of the current economic climate - and we will continue to do so," said Goyvaerts.
