SABIC expands portfolio of ULTEM UTF120 film for high-temperature dielectric capacitors

October 09/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, has introduced two new gauges of ULTEM UTF120 polyetherimide (PEI) dielectric film for high-temperature, professional-grade capacitor applications, as per the company's press release.

These new additions of 7m and 10m (micron) thicknesses to SABICs industry-leading portfolio of ULTEM UTF120 film respond to customers requirements for film that can meet the voltage requirements of different capacitors and open the door for new design options.

SABICs ULTEM UTF120 film technology offers important advantages for capacitor applications, such as high dielectric constant and insulation resistance and low dielectric loss. The two new grades address the need for higher-voltage applications that require thicker film with greater storage capacity.

These new ULTEM UTF120 film grades are part of an expanding portfolio that already features a 5m ULTEM UTF120 film product, which was launched last year. Today, SABIC is the only materials supplier offering extruded PEI film at these thicknesses.

"Todays power electronics applications demand higher performance and greater reliability than ever before," said Stephanie Gathman, director, Emerging Applications, SABIC. "SABIC is actively investing in new high-temperature film technologies that offer distinct advantages over previous options, including better thermal and electrical stability and longer service life. With the introduction of these two new ULTEM UTF120 film grades, we are continuing to deliver on our strategy of building a broad portfolio that can support a full range of capacitor voltages and energy densities."

As MRC informed previously, in November 2017, Plastics-maker Sabic developed new materials for customers producing LED automotive lighting parts. LEXAN HF4010SR resin was one of the new offerings. This polycarbonate (PC) material can make it possible for customers to develop complex headlight bezels with enhanced aesthetics. Sabic also added new grades to its existing LEXAN XHT resin line, which can offer improved flow at high temperatures compared to other high-heat polycarbonate materials available today.

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) ranks among the world's top petrochemical companies. The company is among the world�s market leaders in the production of polyethylene, polypropylene and other advanced thermoplastics, glycols, methanol and fertilizers.
