PIN FR film for LEDs and performance applications

Teijin DuPont Films Japan has launched new PIN FR films for electronics, construction, and performance applications. The company states “Halogenated flame retardants are not used, eliminating related concerns regarding environmental impact and human health”. The new PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) film, Tetoron UF, targets electronics and other performance applications, including LED lighting (the film offers high reflectance properties), as well as in substrates for flexible electronic displays, computers and office equipment and electronics parts labels.

Tetoron UF offers fire performance equivalent to UL VTM-0, heat and chemical resistance and strength. The company claims it is up to ten times cheaper than polyamides often used to achieve comparable levels of performance. Teijin DuPont’s PEN (polyethylene napthalate) film, Teonex Q, achieves VTM-0 self-extinguishing within 10 seconds and offers excellent strength and heat resistance because of the proprietary PIN flame retardant. Applications include lithium ion batteries, flexible printed circuit boards, flat cables, lighting and construction materials.
