is showcasing examples of the innovation it can to help the automotive industry greater fuel efficiency, safety, improved durability and overall performance at K 2013, the plastics fair taking inDüsseldorf, Germany. These range from the advanced (PC) side windows of XL1 diesel plug-in hybrid to an tailgate concept, both at enabling lighter weight and efficiency. SABIC is also an innovative application for tires on a synthetic rubber material that can deliver greater and longer wear life, in to a plastic solution addressing the issues that come metal fuel caps. materials-based application solutions, others, demonstrate SABIC’s focus on delivering the materials and support required by the automotive to produce energy-efficient, high vehicles.

“The featured applications at year’s K Show reflect how we at continually seek to apply our understanding of the automotive industry in a way enables our customers to achieve performance,” says Scott General Manager, Automotive, for Innovative Plastics business. of the applications provides a glimpse what is possible when you the problem-solving power of innovative We care deeply about the way in our material solutions help accomplish what matters whether it is regulatory compliance, savings, styling differentiation or The K is another way for us to demonstrate our commitment to our customers meet these

XL1 Highlights Readiness of Polycarbonate as Lightweight Industry Solution

One of flagship applications at K 2013 is the version of Volkswagen’s XL1 diesel hybrid vehicle, the world’s fuel-efficient serial car with a fuel consumption rating of 0.9 km, according to the New European Driving (NEDC).

To achieve this level of performance, Volkswagen the XL1 for efficiency in all areas of its design and To help lighten the vehicle, aerodynamic performance and reduce consumption, Volkswagen became the OEM to adopt a two-component injection-moulded for the side windows of a passenger using SABIC’s proprietary plasma coating technology on PC resin and CYCOLOY™ PC/ABS resin. These advanced materials reduce the weight of the windows by 33 percent vs. conventional solutions, while delivering a quality optical appearance and surface. SABIC provided application development support to in the design, engineering and production of the windows.

All-thermoplastic Tailgate Concept Up to 30 Percent Weight Savings, of Functions and Design Freedom

is also showcasing its all-thermoplastic concept. Automakers have sought a viable, lightweight to steel for this part of the Previous concepts shared the industry have simply to replace tailgate parts out of conventional materials with SABIC’s tailgate concept is for an all-plastic solution from the stage of the design process to the desired stiffness and strength in to weight savings of up to 30 percent or kg compared to tailgates of a similar using conventional materials. The also provides unique of function integration and significant to create vehicles with designs. Based on extensive engineering simulations and additional SABIC compared its tailgate to those using alternative like steel, aluminum and hybrid offerings. The results SABIC’s all-thermoplastic tailgate is the favourable system solution it comes to weight, total quality, ease of production and freedom.

SABIC draws from its selection of thermoplastic materials in to its design, engineering, test and support capabilities to provide a source for tailgate design and For online painting, the outer panel of the tailgate can be made out of GTX resin; for offline painting, resin, CYCOLOY™ HMD resin or SABIC® PP compound. For the inner part of an offline module, long glass fiber PP resin or VERTON™ long fiber filled PBT resin can be for online painting, VERTON glass fiber filled PA Using SABIC’s LEXAN and EXATEC coating technology enhances the design freedom, integration and weight savings possible through this tailgate design. A second of black out material on the glazing using CYCOLOY™ XCM resin the possibilities for integrated functionality, as fixing for rear lighting, and cameras.

New Innovations Reflect Expanding Solutions for Automotive Industry

is featuring additional applications at the K reflect the company’s growing of material solutions for the automotive Among them is a synthetic known as Polybutadiene rubber an homo-polymerized 1,3 butadiene, which is highlighting for use to develop tires are safer, more fuel and longer lasting. Tires from SABIC’s BR material for greater wet grip, abrasion and lower rolling resistance, are the key performance attributes in tire The challenge with tire is that often, improving one will compromise another. The BR material’s enhanced properties in a of temperatures and road conditions can this compromise.

Fuel caps made polyoxymethylene (POM) is another of the growing opportunities available to the with SABIC’s expanding POM is a polymer that is most for its high stiffness, mechanical and good resistance to chemicals and True to these attributes, POM caps resist corrosion and when exposed to harsh which is not always the case metal alternatives, enhancing the of the part. The POM fuel caps can save weight and lower production costs.

SABIC’s selection of materials supports across various vehicle including: chassis, electrical and exteriors, interiors, lighting, as as powertrain and fuel systems. The with a 50-year legacy of and proven performance serving the automotive industry, continues to its capabilities to serve customers the world with investments in technology development, customer and manufacturing.

SABIC invites visitors K 2013 in Dusseldorf, from 16 to 23 2013, to visit the stand at 6, Stand D42, where will be able to see some of the relevant applications for the global industry. More information can be found at at the press
