SABIC's "Chemistry that Matters" at K 2016

SABIC will be exhibiting at K 2016 (Hall 6, Stand D42), the world's largest plastics trade fair, in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 19th to 26th, and will showcase to the expo's 220,000 visitors how "Chemistry that Matters" is addressing global trends and the challenges in key industries with inspiring solutions to help create a better future for everyone.

With a strong emphasis on sustainability, SABIC at this year's event will highlight its strong, collaborative approach with customers to jointly develop and produce global solutions, from concept to realisation.

"Striving for a sustainable future means looking at business practices differently and being able to turn challenges into opportunities that add lasting business value," said Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh, Executive Vice President Polymers. "Our new organization brings us closer to customers, enabling us to offer sustainable solutions to the entire value chain and move further toward our vision to be a preferred world leader in chemicals."

On its open, two-deck stand - again located prominently in the center of Hall 6 - SABIC will feature new, sustainability-enabling materials and breakthrough technologies it has developed in close collaboration with customers. With the focus on key industry segments such as packaging, construction, healthcare, transportation, consumer goods and electronics, SABIC will display specific, innovative applications, such as renewable packaging, fuel-efficient transportation solutions, and easily constructed, reusable buildings. Stand visitors can gain deeper knowledge about these technologies through interactive, digital content.

The striking design of the stand will feature interior and exteriors walls constructed of SABIC's LEXAN sheet, which is 50% lighter and 250 times more impact-resistant than glass. These materials help to reduce transport and labour costs, facilitate easy and fast installation, and provide excellent UV and fire resistance.

The UV-protected outer surface offers long-term weatherability and its multiwall structure provides profound thermal insulation. With its inherent high impact resistance, clarity and durability, LEXAN sheet helps to maintain safety and a clear view in indoor applications.
