Elevating Vehicle Safety
SABIC, a global chemical industry leader, introduces two innovative LNP™ STAT-KON™ compounds tailored for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These compounds target ADAS radar absorbers, facilitating the adoption of millimeter wave (mmWave) radar, known for its improved sensor accuracy and range. With robust noise reduction, these materials empower new designs for both internal and external absorbers.
The award-winning LNP STAT-KON WDF40RID compound boasts high absorption (up to 75 percent at 77 GHz) and controlled reflection, a game-changer in ADAS radar resolution. Additionally, the LNP STAT-KON WDF40RI compound offers impressive radio wave absorption and total shielding with metal backs.
Beyond noise reduction, these compounds offer exceptional flow properties. The LNP STAT-KON WDF40RID compound's thin-wall design potential enhances interior radar absorbers, while maintaining superior dimensional stability. Jenny Wang, Director of Formulation & Application, APAC, Specialties at SABIC, emphasizes the compounds' role: "Adoption of these new compounds can help the industry advance the state of the art in ADAS radar."
SABIC's broad high-performance materials portfolio, including ULTEM™, NORYL™, EXTEM™ resins, and LNP™ FARADEX™, LNP™ KONDUIT™, and LNP™ THERMOCOMP™ compounds, fuels ADAS innovation across components like covers, housings, lenses, and more, shaping safer and smarter vehicles for the future.
