The Lifoflex Flam series 700 has been especially designed for applications inside of railway vehicles (profiles, cable grommets, connectors, electrical insulation). The compounds had been tested along DIN 5510-2:2009-05, a preventive fire protection test in railway vehicles, and received the following classifications: Flammability S3Drip Formation ST2Smoke Formation SR2 The DIN EN ISO 5659-2 fume toxicity test yielded an FED classification of 0.14 (max. permissible: ? 1) for the tested material (tzul = 30min). The TPE grades are available in hardnesses ranging from 40 to 90 Shore A. They offer good adhesion to thermoplastics such as PP and PE for overmoulding and co-extrusion applications. Grades can also be combined with additional compounding technologies, such as colour, antistatic or electrical conductivity, while maintaining their RoHS compliance. Applications for Lifoflex Flam TPE compounds include; cords, connectors, electrical insulation, railway vehicles, cavity wall sockets as well as miscellaneous gasket profiles. Christian Berg, chemical engineer at Müller Kunststoffe, presented a paper on electrically conductive and flame retardant TPE compounds at the TPE Forum taking place during DKT 2012 in Nuremberg.
