Flame retardancy

The engineering plastics used in various electronics parts have to comply with strict flame retardancy requirements and more environmentally friendly solutions

Flame retardancy that’s safer for the environment

Flame retardancy that’s safer for the environment

As the electronics industry moved to capture more computing power into smaller spaces, it puts bigger demands on the materials used to manufacture the various parts. The engineering plastics used in these parts often have to comply with strict flame retardancy requirements, for example UL94 ratings, as well as looking to solutions that are more environmentally friendly, such as halogen-free flame retardant additives.

Our researchers have spent many years studying the flame retardancy behavior of the plastics in our portfolio, leading to the development of numerous halogen-free flame retardant grades across all our major product lines. This includes Akulon, Arnite, Arnitel, EcoPaXX, Stanyl and ForTii. Whether it’s for USB-C connectors, DDR4 connectors or low voltage switch gears, our materials ensure the flame retardancy your products need in a product with low environmental impact.
