Italy based compounder Vamp Tech specialised in flame retarded compounds, has launched a PIN flame retarded PPA (PA6T) with 30% glass fibre. Vampamid HT 3028 V0 offers resistance to high temperatures (continuous operation at up to 155°C at all thicknesses, which is the highest rating for PPA in the UL database).
The use of PIN flame retardants enables fire performance UL94.V0 down to 0.4mm thickness and HL3 in R22/R23 certification under the new EU railway safety standard EN45545. The product can be delivered in a range of colours and is adapted to electrical and electronics and lighting applications where thin-wall designs require high production temperatures and finished products must offer high-temperature operation, low moisture absorption and demanding fire performance.
