SABIC has developed a polypropylene with high marks for strength (more than 65 cN) and foamability called SABIC® PP-UMS (Ultra Melt Strength) resin. It can be used by all industry segments as a building block to develop new foaming solutions that enable an unprecedented level of light weighting.
The SABIC® PP-UMS material has been evaluated and optimized for foaming at SABIC’s Foam Innovation Center (FIC) in The Netherlands. The Center is equipped with most foam process capabilities as well as analytical equipment. This allows the company to work closely with customers on the development of new foam solutions and technology innovations.
