Featured customer applications

LED Array Holder

Consumer goods | Lighting

ForTii® PA4T allows for reliable solutions due to its good mechanical integrity, its high flowability required to secure stiffness and its flammability rating V0 at 0.2mm; ForTii® PA4T allows for appealing solutions due to its bright white colour and a good colour stability after reflow soldering; ForTii® PA4T allows for cost effective solutions due to its ease of processability and for sustainable solutions due to its good carbon footprint

Wire and Cable Insulation

Automotive | Auto Electronics & Electricals | Wire & Cables

Arnitel® TPC allows for reliable solutions due its high temperature resistance (class T3 and T4, Class D (150°C) enabling thin and ultra thin wall designs, Class E (175°C) >20 mm2 thick and thin wall); Arnitel® TPC allows for cost effective solutions (up to 50% lower system costs versus ETFE/FEP, 40% weight down versus XL PO at similar costs); Arnitel® TPC allows for sustainable solutions due to availability of halogen free flameretardant grades

Medium Voltage Circuit Breaker Isolators

Electrical | Power distribution | Medium / High Voltage Switchgear

ForTii® PA4T allows for more sustainable solutions in end-products due to lower CO₂ footprint as compared to solutions with epoxy Xlink agent; ForTii® PA4T allows for significant system cost reduction due to lower density up to 17% than conventional materials, part weight reduction up to 35%, cycle time down by factor 7
