Flame-retardant resins

New flame-retardant Extem UP thermoplastic polyimide (TPI) resins are extreme high-heat materials that recently achieved a UL746B relative temperature index (RTI) rating of 240C. By incorporating polyetheretherketone (PEEK) into its proven ultra-performance Extem resin technology, SABIC Innovative Plastics is able to offer customers optimized performance combining the best of both materials. This unique blend technology opens new opportunities for lower-weight, high-temperature continuous use applications such as semiconductor chip trays, connectors for harsh environments, and metal replacement in high-heat oil and gas environments. This new breakthrough technology demonstrates once again SABIC Innovative Plastics’ commitment to the proactive development of unique specialty resins that meet the highest performance demands of customers.
