PIN FR recycled / biobased TPE

Avient has launched HFFR TPEs with post-consumer recycled or bio-biased content for performance cable applications (Halogen Free Flame Retardant Thermo-Plastic Elastomer). The resin compounds have up to 45% bio-based or 30 post-consumer recycled content. They achieve UL 94 V-0 (3.2 mm), offer UV resistance, hardness and processability for extrusion molding. The TPEs are compatible with overmolding onto PP, ABS and PE and can be coloured. Applications include electronics cables such as USB-C connector wires. Non halogenated flame retardant TPEs with recycled or biobased content are also available for transport, consumer and other applications.
