SABIC to Launch New LNP THERMOCOMP AM DC0041XA51 Compound at InnoTrans 2022 September 19 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, September 19, 2022

SABIC will introduce at InnoTrans 2022 in Berlin, Germany, LNP THERMOCOMP AM DC0041XA51 compound, a novel carbon fiber-reinforced, flame-retardant (FR) compound well-suited for pellet-fed additive manufacturing (PFAM) that complies with E.U. and U.S. rail fire safety standards. The innovative new compound can help the rail industry advance from building traditional tools for part production from thermosets to utilizing on demand 3D printing which can potentially lower system costs by reducing inventory levels of large tools and replacement parts.
At InnoTrans, September 20-23, in Hall 5.1, booth 332, SABIC will be exhibiting a large front-hatch part printed by CAF, a leading multinational supplier of comprehensive transit solutions for major railway networks, using LNP THERMOCOMP AM DC0041XA51 compound.
“With our increased focus on 3D printing, we were looking for a material that complies with the stringent safety requirements set forth in international standards like NFPA 130 or EN45545,” said Lucas Esteban, operational manager from Digital Manufacturing, CAF. “SABIC’s LNP THERMOCOMP AM DC0041XA51 compound has unique features that fit well with industry requirements, including the appropriate railway certificates. Its non-halogenated flame-retardant system addresses current sustainability trends, and its carbon fiber reinforcement and favorable processing allow us to make larger part geometries with sufficient stiffness and limited warpage. This breakthrough material is an ideal solution for CAF and the entire transportation industry.”
