Xiaomi Inc. Selects Three Materials from Saudi Basic Industries Corporation to Develop its Mi3 Smartphone

Xiaomi Inc. has selected three materials from Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, or SABIC, to develop its Mi3 smartphone. Xiaomi selected SABIC's LNP THERMOCOMP compound, LNP THERMOCOMP LDS and LEXAN EXL resin to create a smartphone that met complex technical specifications without sacrificing design and aesthetic appeal, allowing it to stand apart from the competition. SABIC delivered a combination of materials which enabled Xiaomi to integrate the antenna into the frame of the phone, which helped to reduce the part space and weight of the phone without sacrificing design or performance. Additionally, SABIC's ability to offer all three materials used in the phone saved the customer time in validating compatibility, enabling them to develop this industry leading smartphone at an excellent value. SABIC's new grade of LNP THERMOCOMP compound, along with SABIC's LNP THERMOCOMP LDS, was used by Xiaomi to create a new smartphone frame, which required strength, stiffness and impact resistance, as well as the integrated antenna. This feature is attractive because it can reduce the size of the smartphone device and eliminate the secondary process of incorporating a separate antenna into the phone, both of which may help the customer to reduce assembly time and cost. Additionally, SABIC'S LEXAN EXL resin was selected to allow for rich, jewel-toned colors for the backing of the device. The two LNP THERMOCOMP compounds provided Xiaomi with the material solution needed to develop a phone with thin but durable walls while also enabling the use of laser direct structuring processing to integrate the antenna into the frame. Xiaomi Inc. found SABIC's new grade of LNP THERMOCOMP compound to be especially well-suited for making a device frame as it delivered the desired balanced mechanical properties such as stiffness and strength, in addition to good impact resistance. It also helped provide a surface that enabled a high yield rate for non-conductive vacuum metallization and painting, two processes that are often used on device frames. Xiaomi also selected LNP THERMOCOMP LDS compound for the laser direct structuring of the antenna itself.

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation to Introduce Technical Grade Urea

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation has announced that it will introduce technical grade urea that will reportedly allow diesel engines reduce hazardous emissions. The new grade will be produced at SABIC's manufacturing affiliate, Al-Jubail Fertilizer Company (Al-Bayroni) in Jubail, with a capacity of 80,000 tons per year. SABIC's Technical Grade Urea will enable cleaner diesel technology in engines through liquid injection of urea solution into the exhaust stream of the diesel engine prior to its catalytic converter. This allows the engine to perform better, to use fuel more efficiently while destroying the increased nitrogen oxides with urea.
