Diab has agreed to acquire the ULTEM foam production line from SABIC. Diab will incorporate the ULTEM resin-based foam into its current portfolio under the name Divinycell U. Diab will further the development of ULTEM resin-based foam with support from SABIC.

“We are excited to broaden our portfolio with the acquisition of the ULTEM foam production line and develop the technology further,” said Diab CEO, Tobias Hahn. “This will strengthen our position in the market, enabling us to offer even more fit for purpose core material.”

Divinycell U is a recyclable polyetherimide (PEI) thermoplastic foam targeted for use in aerospace applications. With intermediate densities positioned between our current F50 and F90, we will be able to now provide 60 and 80kg/m3 densities which results in potential significant weight saving opportunities

”Diab already has an excellent product for FST applications in Divinycell F,” stated Hahn. “With Divinycell U, we can broaden our offering to the aerospace market with a product that has even better fire properties.”

Scott Fisher, business director, ULTEM Products and Additives, SABIC added: “Diab is a well-recognised company offering advanced capabilities in the lightweight material space with broad access to aerospace and industrial markets and customers. SABIC looks forward to collaborating with Diab to continue advancing the adoption and growth of the ULTEM resin-based Divinycell U foam.”

Diab will relocate the acquired production line equipment to its manufacturing site in DeSoto, Texas, USA. Beginning Q3-2021, Diab will produce and market the Divinycell U portfolio to existing and new users of the ULTEM resin-based foam.
