SABIC Establishes new Flowpact PP

sabiclogoSABIC, head-quartered in Saudi Arabia  has produced the new Flowpact polypropylene (PP) impact copolymers, which will help in the manufacture of injection-moulded rigid packaging.

Known as SABIC PP FPC45, Flowpact PP has been developed to produce rigid packaging, with volumes ranging between 200ml and around 10l.

SABIC PP FPC45 can be used to manufacture caps, closures and houseware, as well as containers used for packaging foods and products.

The new Flowpact PP provides rigid packaging with improved stacking capabilities, as well as more economical transport and storage.

SABIC polypropylene business manager Bert Claessens said: “We saw a need in the market for a material capable of delivering higher top load strength and superior stiffness in hot filling applications, what we have achieved is significant.

“SABIC PP FPC45 delivers a top load strength that is some 17% higher than current benchmark materials commercially available today.”

The flow properties of the newly developed product facilitate thin walling and fast injection.

Its higher crystallisation temperature allows parts to be demoulded faster, as well as reduces energy consumption and helps increase productivity at the processor.

SABIC is upgrading its portfolio to meet market requirements, and plans to launch more rigid packaging and products by the end of 2016.

SABIC, which stands for Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation, is a manufacturing company, operating chemicals, fertilizers,  metals and many more compounds. It is the largest company situated in the Middle East.
