The new materials are UDMAX GPE (glass fibre-reinforced polyethylene) and UDMAX CPA (carbon fibre-reinforced polyamide).

“SABIC is looking into entering new markets with the addition of the carbon-fibre reinforced tapes to our existing portfolio of continuous fibre thermoplastics,” said Andrey Turchin, SABIC FRT business leader. “Having unique mechanical properties, they enable the production of stiffer, stronger and more lightweight parts and can be used in variety of applications such as pipes, pressure vessels, sporting goods.”
