Korean auto parts specialist INFAC and Lanxess’ new PIN FR housing satisfies stringent mechanical and chemical demands. The housing uses a non-halogenated FR, 30% glass fibre reinforced polyamide 6, which offers the specific necessary properties. High processability enables production of a complex housing with few parts, simplified assembly and lightweight. The compound is mechanically robust, ensures shock absorption and electrical insulating is resistant to battery electrolyte or cooling media and uses PIN flame retardants to achieve required fire performance.
