LNP™ AT 70:
FULL OF ENERGY AND INNOVATION,
READY FOR THE FUTURE
A pioneer in compounding technologies, the LNP product brand has a string of important technological achievements behind it.
A product line with an impressive list of accomplishments to its name, the era of reinforced thermoplastics was launched when the first fully dispersed short fiber reinforced compounds were introduced in the 1960s. In the 1980s, patented pultruded long fiber reinforced technology was added to open the age of LFRTs. Earlier, in the 1970s, the world’s first carbon fiber reinforced compounds were developed, in addition to the first statically conductive compounds. A year later EMI/RFI shielding compounds were launched and today the product line reflects important patents covering EMI/RFI shielding, in addition to several patents on wear resistance without the need for PTFE.
Scientists and technologists behind the LNP portfolio continue to push the limits of technical performance, solving new challenges on a regular basis, while remaining committed to provide unique offerings and help create value for our customers.”
-- Joshua Chiaw, Director, Business Management, LNP, SABIC.“
First introduced in 1948, the LNP portfolio now features a range of product families that include LUBRICOMP™ lubricated compounds, LUBRILOY™ lubricated compounds based on alloy technology, THERMOCOMP™ reinforced compounds, THERMOTUF™ impact modified compounds, STAT-KON™ electrically conductive compounds, STAT-LOY™ anti-static compounds, VERTON™ long fiber-reinforced thermoplastics (LFRTs), FARADEX™ EMI/RFI shielding compounds, KONDUIT™ thermally conductive compounds, and COLORCOMP™ custom-colored compounds. LNP compounds utilize over 30 base resins and more than 200 different fillers to achieve various effects.
The LNP portfolio is now also leveraging a broad palette of SABIC polycarbonate copolymers with exceptional properties for compounding. These copolymers are designed to offer unique value compared to general purpose polycarbonate and include resin portfolios with high heat resistance (XHT & CXT), low temperature ductility (EXL), superior flow and ductility (HFD), prolonged resistance to UV exposure for outdoor applications (SLX), transparent flame retardancy at thin gage (CFR), and excellent flame, smoke and toxicity properties for mass transportation (FST).
“With LNP products, you get the complete package. To stay at the top for 70 years, it takes a lot of effort. The LNP portfolio has evolved since 1948 but its core focus has remained intact, to innovate and to provide high quality and customized solutions to address our customers’ needs. That’s why our motto is: ‘We Compound the Answer.’”
-- Darpan Parikh, Global Product Management Leader, LNP, SABIC.
