Impact Copolymer for Comsumer Goods from Sabic

PP Portfolio ist Growing

The new PP PPA20 polymer, according to manufacturer Sabic, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is aimed to provide a combination of high gloss, high scratch resistance and low stress whitening over regular impact copolymers together with balanced impact strength and stiffness. In many application cases, it can offer a cost and energy savings potential based on its lower density, higher flow and faster crystallization than currently used materials. Further energy savings may be leveraged as the material eliminates the need for pre-drying and can be injection molded at lower mold and barrel temperatures versus ABS.

Low density and high flow also open conceivable new material and weight saving design opportunities for more resource-efficient and waste-reducing products, such as from sleek housings with lower wall-thicknesses. A further advantage may be the phthalate-free polymer technology of PP PPA20, which answers the need for improved consumer health safety in food contact appliances.

Targeted applications of the copolymer span from household appliances and food storage containers to toys and furniture. Typical examples include coffee makers, steam irons, vacuum cleaners, personal hygiene appliances and aesthetic fascia for white goods, such as washing machines and refrigerators.
