Sabic, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, has expanded its portfolio of innovative material solutions with the recent investment in a majority stake in Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastics, B.V., which is based in Lelystad, The Netherlands. “This investment will enable Sabic to develop new thermoplastic products, processes and design solutions to help our customers take full advantage of the unique light weighting opportunities offered by composites,” said Ernesto Occhiello, EVP Specialties, Sabic.

Sabic’s Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastics (FRT) business, specializes in the production of engineered thermoplastic, fiber-reinforced unidirectional (“UD”) tapes. The tapes can be used across a wide variety of industries, ranging from building and construction, to transportation and energy. UDMAX tapes are made using a unique proprietary HPFIT technology, which quickly and precisely enables the spread and combination of thousands of glass or carbon fibers with a polymer matrix. As a result, the tapes have a high density of fibers, high quality fiber impregnation in the resin matrix, minimal void content and fewer broken fibers. They can be used to form composite materials that can in turn be used to manufacture components with superior performance to alternative materials, such as laminates and molded parts
