SABIC unveils new material for junction boxes of 1,500-volt installations

Chemical company SABIC (Saudi Basic Industries Corporation) has launched a »breakthrough« polycarbonate (PC)-based copolymer resin that the company says is »well-suited for PV connector bodies« and meets the increased requirements for installations with 1,500 V system voltage. The »LNP EXL9334P« material offers increased resilience at low temperatures, »good dimensional stability, excellent heat resistance, good durability and weather resistance and flame retardance.« SABIC believes this gives its product an advantage over materials such as glass-reinforced nylon, polyphenylene ether (PPE) and standard PC.
