White Good Connectors

Consumer goods | Appliances

Arnite® PBT allows for reliable solutions due to good electrical and mechanical properties (especially toughness and ductility) at low & high temperatures, excellent CTI values, UL94 V2 at 0.75 mm certification; Arnite® PBT allows for reliable connector solutions with film hinges and snap-fit features

ForTii® JTX2

30% Glass Reinforced

ForTii® JTX2 has robust mechanical performance and has good reliability in thermal ageing and mechanical shocks. JTX2 has consistent performance in injection molding processing and a low risk of blistering due to its JEDEC MLS 1 rating for specified thicknesses. JTX2 is the best candidate for HB reflow headers/connectors in (automotive) electronics.
