Pacific Fishermen shipyard and PFI Marine Electric, Seattle, use PIN flame retardant electrical enclosures from Michigan-based Robroy Stahlin, supplier of high-performance, non-metallic, waterproof housings for electrical equipment protection and safety. Stahlin’s J Series enclosures, using its patented SolarGuard polyester fibreglass PIN flame retardant materials, can ensure durable protection in extremely harsh environments, such as those fishermen face in the Bering Sea and North Pacific: saltwater, frost, rain, snow, high winds, storms, and temperatures that reach -45°C, UV and chemical resistance.
Fire safety is ensured with an NFPA No.101 Class A flame spread index and UL94-5V standards for fire retardancy, achieved through use of alumina trihydrate (ATH) PIN flame retardants.
