Lanxess is showcasing new applications for its non-halogenated PIN flame retardant polyamide Durethan range. The range includes non-reinforced, glass fibre and mineral reinforced, PA6, PA66 and up to 15% consumer recycled polymer formulations, adapted for injection molding with good flow characteristics.
Different formulations can be adapted to laser marking or offer specific surface finishes. Durethan BKV 20 FN01 uses phosphorus-based fire safety technology, achieving UL94 V0 (0.75mm) fire performance classification, and is adapted for injection molding of performance, high-voltage components in electrical vehicle battery systems.
