Fire protection components with great design flexibility
Flame-retardant profiles without compromise
Safety and fire protection are important aspects in all sectors – when it comes to construction and electrical engineering/electronics, they are fundamental. Typical applications for flame protection profiles include insulation profiles in window construction and power supply and housing components in electronics/electrical engineering. New uses in rail transport and vehicle construction are also on the rise, such as battery components for electric vehicles.
Extruding plastics with flame-retardant additives is generally not easy and often results in reduced technical properties such as accuracy, surface quality, and strength. We achieve the flame-retardant function without compromising on high precision, smooth surfaces, or cost-effective processability – even when high strength is needed. For our flame-retardant profiles we use a modified version of the well-established PA66 GF25, for example. This material, PA66 GF25 V0, fulfills the requirements of the best category V0 in accordance with UL94 .
High strength and precision
Free from bromine, halogen, and red phosphorus
A further strength of the compounds we use is that metals are much less likely to corrode when exposed to their flame-retardant additives in a warm and damp environment.
