EMS-Grivory’s PIN FR long glass-fibre polyamide selected for e-vehicle rapid charger and for industrial circuit-breaker. The long fibre reinforced PAs, with non-halogenated flame retardants offer thermoplastic processability (injection moldable), achieve UL94-V0 (@1.6 mm) and ensure performance at high temperature, low creep, high strength, impact resistance and low warpage. They have been selected by Schneider Electric in replacement of thermoset material for the breaking cell of its range of compact NSXm circuit breakers, where mechanical resistance, heat aging, electrical performance and fire protection are critical because of reduced size. Huber+Suhner have selected the LGF PAs for its new RADOX KPC rapid charger for electric vehicles which operates up to 400A/1000V.
