UL Webinar: DOMO's Polyamide-based Flame Retardants Meeting Miniaturization Needs

May 05, 2022 14:00 - 15:00 Virtual

Specifically formulated to increase fire and electrical protection for power management equipment, the flame retardant polyamides give manufacturers an edge when it comes to miniaturization. Indeed, TECHNYL® PROTECT nylon enables manufacturers to produce miniaturized components of the highest quality while meeting the strictest safety standards.

The TECHNYL® PROTECT line has been developed for applications ranging from electrical protection devices, power management and renewable energy systems, to automotive electrics and consumer electronics. With excellent electrical performance, easy-processing ability, and mechanical strength, TECHNYL® PROTECT flame retardant polymers have demonstrated their value in numerous high voltage component product designs, including for mini and smart circuit breakers, molded-case circuit breakers, power control equipment and contactors, as well as e-mobility connectors.

The polyamide 6 and 66 offering mainly consists of halogen-free flame retardant (HFFR) grades while, red phosphorous-based and halogenated solutions continue to be available to meet specific applications needs.

In addition, DOMO customers can benefit from the new TECHNYL® 4EARTH® halogen free flame retardant family, based on recycled feedstock, as well as from TECHNYL STAR® and TECHNYL® ONE solutions, already well established in the E&E market and in new EV applications answering these specific markets needs as optimized processability processing behavior, reduced corrosion and thermal ageing.

Key benefits

  •  Class-leading fire protection and electrical performance
  • Medium to highly reinforced grades 
  • Reduced production cost 
  • Excellent thermal aging properties 

With its wide processing window, accurate filling, and good surface aspect, the TECHNYL® PROTECT family delivers robust results. The line also includes a range of color and laser-marking options. TECHNYL® PROTECT formulations meet the strictest regulations facing the electrical equipment market, notably UL and IEC fire and fume certification.
This includes:

  • High fire rating class: UL 94 V0, V1 or V2 depending on grade
  • A fully compliant yellow card, including RTI
  • Compliance with EU environmental waste management directives, RoHS1 2002/95/CE and WEEE2 2002/96/CE
