RESINEX (Ravago Group), a leading plastics distributor in Europe, will supply a new Solvay Engineering Plastics polymer technology designed especially to help electrical protection products manufacturers address miniaturization challenges and which yields high electrical performance while reducing tool corrosion and simplifying processing.
The halogen-free, flame-retardant, high temperature-resistant polyamide (PAHT) with 30 % by wt. glass fibres has good dimensional stability, a UL94 V-0 rating at only 0.4 mm, a “best-in-class” RTI of 150°C and a comparative tracking index (CTI) of 600 V. Thanks to its processing properties, it can be used, for example, for the production of particularly thin-walled yet stiff and rugged parts for the E&E industry such as housings for miniaturized circuit breakers or edge connectors. RESINEX also supplies Trinseo’s portfolio of CALIBRETM and EMERGETM polycarbonate and advanced resins which provide PIN flame retardant solutions for electrical applications such as switches, plugs and meters, achieving EN 60695 or UL 94 fire safety standards.
