White goods connector

Making the right connection

Arnite® is the perfect material for connectors in unattended white goods like washing machines, dryers and dishwashers. It meets stringent regulations while delivering better, more sustainable performance.

Because they operate at such high currents, white goods need to comply with stringent safety regulations - particularly IEC 60335. For manufacturers, finding next-generation materials that add value while meeting these regulations isn’t easy. But when it comes to connectors Arnite is proving to be the ideal solution for white goods.

Arnite T XG meets all specified standards – and more. Its thermal performance, moldability and very low moisture uptake make it superior to both polyamide 6 and 66 (which both tend to expand and lose their shape). And importantly, it’s halogen-free, using a flame retardant system that’s free of both halogen and red phosphorus.

Brendan Maguire, Design Manager of connector specialist Molex Ireland says: “Halogen-free Arnite XG is revolutionary because it is the first unfilled PBT that has tested positively according to GWT on end products.”
