Late September, Sabic Innovative Plastics has cut the ribbon at its new Ultem polyetherimide (PEI) resin production facility in Cartagena. This event marks a 35 percent increase in Ultem resin capacity for European and global customers.

Cartagena/Spain, Bergen op Zoom/The Netherlands – The state-of-the-art € 300 million facility, which is Sabic Innovative Plastics’ second Ultem resin plant, will provide customers with higher supply dependability. The plant also encompasses scalable capacity for producing ultra-high-performance Extem resin grades and specialty intermediates (anhydrides). Proprietary process chemistry and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies will improve operating reliability and flexibility while minimizing the environmental impact of by-products, Sabic says. This major investment demonstrates the company’s unyielding commitment to reliable, scalable supplies of its Ultem and Extem resin grades, whose outstanding performance is driving ever-greater demand from global customers. The Cartagena plant will primarily produce Ultem base resin.
