pinfa member Asahi Kasei’s PIN FR mPPE shows application success in automotive, electronics, photovoltaics, and water installations. mPPE (modified polyphenylene ether) is a combination of polyphenylene ether with polystyrene, polyamide, polypropylene, polyphenylene sulfide or other polymers. These blends allow for non-halogenated UL 94 HB or V-0 flammability, electrical and mechanical properties, hydrolysis resistance and chemical resistance. Application success stories include drinking water and swimming pool applications (water certifications: KTW, ACS, W270, WRAS, NSF). Automotive applications include EV battery casing parts, under-the-hood parts such as relay boxes, heat-exchanger cover, body parts such as panels, wheel caps, and door handles. In the field of renewable energies it is a suitable material for PV connectors and inverter covers.
