Flame-retardant PC sheets target rolling stock applications


Anticipating the implementation of the pan-European norm for fire safety in rail interiors, SABIC's Innovative Plastics business (Pittsfield, MA) has expanded its portfolio of high-performance material solutions by adding two new Lexan sheet products to its already robust materials portfolio.

These new products include Lexan H6500 sheet, a new polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS) sheet grade that complies with the upcoming CEN/TS 45545 harmonized standard, and Lexan H6200 sheet, a new grade that complies with Germany's DIN norm. Both products have been engineered to help rail customers meet growing demand for enhanced sustainability and advanced thermoplastic technologies with non-chlorinated and non-brominated flame retardance that enhance the design and development of rail interior applications. On display at the InnoTrans 2012 at Berlin Messe, Hall 5.1, booth #228, these industry-leading materials, demonstrate SABIC's understanding of rail industry priorities and its commitment to proactively develop innovative new solutions to help its customers' ever-changing needs.
