Celebrate Manufacturing with SABIC

SABIC Innovative Plastics, the engineering polymers affiliate of Saudi Basic Industries Corp., has opened a 3,000-sq-ft high-performance polymers pilot plant at its Mount Vernon, Ind., facility. There, SABIC IP will produce custom formulations of Ultem polyetherimide resins; Siltem, a blend of Ultem and silicone elastomers; and Extem polyimide resins. Previously, the company says, its piloting work was done externally.

Sabic’s investment in Posey County will be used in Sabic plants all over the world.
