ForTii® - PA4T/PPA

The PPA with POWER

ForTii is a breakthrough high temperature polyamide with heat stabilized and halogen-free flame retardant grades for demanding applications in the electronics, lighting, automotive, white goods, industrial and aerospace industries. We developed the ForTii E&E portfolio in close co-operation with leading OEMs and tier 1 connector and socket manufacturers to ensure we give our customer what they want – and need.

The ForTii MX metal replacement portfolio enables engineers and designers to realize structural parts with robust part performance over a large temperature range and in aggressive environments (road salt, battery acid, coolants, mineral oil). That means a high temperature polyamide with a broad and versatile portfolio of grades that deliver high performance with a unique balance of properties.

It’s all in the application…
