SABIC signs license agreements with MIC, Amiantit

SABIC signed license agreements with Military Industries Corporation (MIC) for BR7 armor-level material technology and with Saudi Arabian Amiantit Co. for trackpad rubber formulation technology, during a ceremony at its headquarters in Riyadh on Nov. 25.

As per the first agreement, SABIC will grant a license to MIC for armor-level panel technology meeting Class BR7 standards, and methods for manufacturing such panels.

The second agreement enables Amiantit to get rubber formulation technology for manufacturing trackpads for military tanks, and methods for manufacturing such materials.

The two agreements are expected to not only support domestic producers in manufacturing world-class armor and trackpad material but also help in creating jobs and building a competitive local workforce. The agreements, which follow SABIC’s commitment to contribute in localizing technologies and industries in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, strengthen the collaboration between the private and public sectors in the field of military defense.
