DuPont Performance Polymers has launched two new grades of advanced materials, with performance and sustainability objectives: DuPont™ Rynite® PET, FR533NH, and DuPont™ Zytel® FR95G25V0NH PA. Both are halogen-free (no halogen added as an intended ingredient) flame-retardant polymers to replace thermosets for housings, sockets and switches in electrical and electronics applications (E&E).
Both materials offer exceptional long-term heat ageing performance (RTI) and outstanding flammability ratings (e.g. UL94 V0 down to 0.4mm), combined with electrical and processing performance. DuPont underlines that the PIN flame retardant materials are designed to match customers’ needs for sustainable solutions ensuring economy and performance in meeting critical challenges in E&E applications such as branching & control, switches and relays, communications and power generation systems.
