Solvay has launched new Technyl® halogen-free flame retardant glass-reinforced polyamide 6.6 grades offering high performance for electronics miniaturisation (high flow) combined with high aesthetic quality (low migration).
Applications include connectors and small consumer electronics parts. Technly® A 60SX offers uses non-halogen flame retardants to reduce corrosion during injection processes and to achieve “significant environmental benefits”. The low corrosivity during processing reduces maintenance costs and increases productivity of molding equipment. The low migration avoids deposits or vent clogging, and combines with high flow enabling production of thin wall components. The compound is UL 5VA flame class at 0.8mm.
