Solvay’s partially bio-based long-chain PPA achieves UL94 V-0 (at 0.4 mm) with processability, strength and stability. The non-halogenated flame retardant polyphthalamide formulations offer processing advantages of high glass transition temperature and melting point (Tg 135°C, Tm 315°C) adapted to non-blistering reflow soldered surface mount devices (SMD) and parts in cooling systems for power electronics or fluid connectors, and to production of miniaturised components. Electrical performance (CTI > 600V), limited moisture absorption, high dimensional stability, low risk of stress corrosion, heat resistance, impact strength, elongation, colourability and surface aesthetic quality are adapted to high-end electrical and electronic parts and e-mobility applications. The PPA is produced using partly non-food competing bio-feedstock and 100% renewable electricity, assessed by Verisk Maplecroft for ESG (environmental & social governance).
