SABIC signed license agreements with Military Industries Corporation (MIC) for BR7 armor-level material technology and with Saudi Arabian Amiantit Co. for trackpad rubber formulation technology during a ceremony at its headquarters in Riyadh on November 25.

As per the first agreement, SABIC will grant license to MIC for armor-level panel technology meeting Class BR7 standards, and methods for manufacturing such panels.

The second agreement enables Amiantit to get rubber formulation technology for manufacturing trackpads for military tanks, and methods for manufacturing such materials.
