Holger Brandt, Nilit Plastics, sees new flame retardancy needs in developing markets such as electric vehicles and mobile and miniaturised electronics, but also in response to safety objectives for household E&E goods. Requirements are increasingly demanding: thin wall structural and fire performance, high temperature stability and processability are all essential for miniaturisation. At the same time, trends towards sustainability and environmental assessments make PIN fire safety solutions essential.
There is huge potential for new PIN fire safety solutions for FR engineering plastics, particularly for organic phosphorus flame retardants. Nilit’s FRIANYL XT non-halogenated FR PPA family (Performance PolyAmide), see press release and pinfa Newsletter 53) follows these trends and offers a solution with UL94-V0 down to 0.4 mm for all colours withstanding elevated temperatures during processing and final use and compliant with all relevant European environmental standards..
