Halogen-free polyamide solution for terminal blocks

Molders of terminal blocks widely employed in industrial machinery, automation, transportation and building infrastructure can now turn to a halogen-free solution in the form of a high temperature polyamide (PA) 4T delivering UL94-V0 flame retardancy combined with outstanding thermal and mechanical performance. Stanyl ForTii T11 is supplied by DSM Engineering Plastics (Singapore). This halogen free formulation has been designed to meet the stringent regulations and high performance requirements for printed circuit board (PCB) terminal blocks that are mounted using surface mount technology (SMT) and allow the PCB to connect to external devices.

Stanyl ForTii T11 complies with European directives governing restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), and results in components with significantly lower carbon footprints than versions made in rival materials such as liquid crystal plastics (LCPs) and polyphthalamides (PPAs) according to its supplier....
