High-performance, ultra-insulating polymers

pinfa member BASF has developed new bromine, chlorine and antimony free FR polyamide and polyester solutions for IT, construction, e-mobility. The new compounds are an unreinforced polyester, and a reinforced polyamide. They offer fire performance (UL94-V0 @ 0.4 mm), highest CTI electrical insulation rating (600 V) and are compatible with injection moulding of complex and thin-wall parts, for e.g. miniaturised electronics, and e-vehicle applications such as high-voltage plugs, charging infrastructure, battery modules and housings. They can be produced in bright colours, including e-mobility orange. The polyester is also suitable for the extrusion of e.g. filaments or pipes.
