SABIC Innovative Plastics is opening a major production line at its Chung-Ju, Korea facility.

The new line will produce LNP Verton long glass fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites, which are widely used across the burgeoning automotive, telecommunications, and appliance industries in Asia. The company’s continued investment in new production facilities such as the LNP Verton composite line is designed to provide customers with a local source of innovative product solutions and technological expertise.

By providing customers with local production and resources, SABIC Innovative Plastics aims to reduce delivery times for LNP Verton composite grades.

“We are demonstrating our ongoing commitment to faster and more responsive customer service by investing in this new production line,” said Alan Leung, Pacific president for SABIC Innovative Plastics. “It will enable us to quickly supply manufacturers and moulders in Korea and Asia with our popular LNP Verton composites. These high-performance materials are in great demand as superior replacements for metal and short-fibre-reinforced plastics. We believe easier access can help customers develop and market innovative applications for greater business success.”

The LNP Verton production line, which will begin operating this month, will run 20 grades of the composites in a variety of resin systems including polypropylene, polyamide and PPA. The new line significantly expands the Chung-Ju facility, which was opened in 1989. The Chung-Ju plant houses a 40,000-ton high-tech manufacturing system, material properties testing equipment, and colour-matching equipment to meet customer requirements.
