SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced the results of a recent design study on automotive rear quarter windows that explored the distinct advantages of LEXAN™ polycarbonate (PC) resins for creating differentiated styling, consolidating components, integrating functions and enhancing aerodynamics. These concepts reveal multiple new opportunities to significantly expand design freedom, control costs and reduce weight by replacing traditional glass with transparent, impact-resistant LEXAN resins. The detailed study, conducted by SABIC designers and engineers, builds on the company’s deep, decades-long history in automotive glazing technology. In addition to rear quarter windows, the SABIC team produced stylish design concepts for rear side windows. The data is available to support the feasibility of these designs, all of which can use well-established processing methods and secondary operations.
To support broader adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), SABIC is launching two new grades of NORYL™ resin that support demand for lighter, thinner and more crash-resistant battery modules and housings. These new innovative materials – NORYL NHP6011 and NHP6012 resins – address key consumer requirements for EVs: improved safety, range and power. They deliver enhanced robust flame retardancy and impact strength to meet stringent industry-related safety standards, as well as thin-wall molding capability to reduce weight and accommodate more cells, helping to extend vehicle range and boost performance. These novel glass fiber-reinforced NORYL resins feature proprietary polyphenylene ether (PPE)-copolymer technology and are the latest additions to SABIC’s growing NHP family of materials for mobility applications.
