Building & Construction Solutions
With the continuing urbanization, a critical issue in population growth is the inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable design of urbanized areas. The architectural, construction and water management industries are looking for materials that meet the demand for environmentally sustainable structures. As a leader in the development of lightweight, robust and energy efficiency solutions, Sabic is showcasing new sustainable materials for pipe, energy, electrical and structural applications.
In line with the company’s vision to deliver a hands-on experience of its latest products, the highlight of the stand’s building & construction area is Sabic’s 3D augmented and interactive house and road scale model which provides context to its range of sustainable products and applications.
Personal Care & Healthcare
The personal hygiene industry is constantly seeking advanced material solutions to help manufacturers push the limits of consumer safety and convenience, function, sustainability and cost control. Growing populations and awareness about health and personal care is increasingly leading to innovations within the sector.
As a strategic material solutions provider to the sector, Sabic is working with its customers to create new products that allow for lighter, safer and more functional personal care & healthcare applications that are also more efficient, comfortable and sustainable. At K 2019, Sabic is showcasing the latest range of its Sabic Purecares polymer portfolio products such as new Sabic PP 514M12 ultra-high melt flow resin for lightweight, breathable fabrics in nonwoven items such as diapers, sanitary products and surgical gowns, as well as other advanced spunbond PP materials designed to reduce the environmental impact.
Exhibits highlighted at Sabic’s stand include examples of REN Clean Skincare’s new packaging. Committed to transforming all its packaging to be recyclable or refillable by 2021, REN Clean Skincare wanted to implement a circular solution that can provide a transparent look and feel while also supporting the complex assembly of parts requiring tight tolerances, such as for airless packaging systems. Sabic’s certified circular PP polymers are used for the container, the closure and other parts of the Evercalm day cream airless packaging, ensuring that these requirements are met without compromising on aesthetics.
Consumer Goods & Appliances
A rapidly increasing middle class is driving growth of the consumer goods and appliances industry. Plastics play an important role in the manufacture of these products which have become ever-present in daily life. Manufacturers are striving to create solutions that are strong, light and durable, while also offering excellent functionality and performance. Many are also looking for sustainable materials that offer the highest levels of design and aesthetic freedom.
With decades of experience, Sabic offers a broad and relevant materials portfolio in this market, together with unparalleled expertise in helping customers achieve greater design flexibility and enhanced product specifications.
With its new Trucirclematerial solutions, Sabic has a showcase of impressive consumer goods and appliances including:
- Tupperware Eco Straw and new drinking tumbler: The portable, reusable Tupperware Eco Straw and a new drinking tumbler are both intended to provide consumers with solutions to help reduce the use of single-use plastic waste both through the material used and the intended use of the products. Both applications are made from Sabic’s high-quality certified circular PP polymer that is derived from a feedstock of mixed plastic waste.
- Royal Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottles (prototype ): The latest design of this high purity, safe and transparent infant feeding bottle uses a Sabic certified circular PP polymer to create a fully recyclable and reusable product that contributes to plastic waste reduction and complies with food safety standards.
- Royal Philips Senseo Quadrante coffee machine water reservoir (prototype1): With an aesthetically refined design, the prototype water container is made from Sabic certified circular PP polymer, enabling faster cycle times due to its lower processing temperature compared to standard materials, potentially leading up to 15% energy savings in this recyclable coffee machine component.
- Calor steam iron from Group SEB: Incorporating high flow Sabic PPA20 impact copolymer, this advanced design results in a lighter, high-gloss, high-strength and scratch resistant product while supporting the recyclability of components.
