TECHNYL® PURE is a new range of high-purity polyamide compounds specially formulated to ensure safety-critical functionality in electrical and electronic parts. It was developed in close collaboration with customers in the e-mobility market to meet the growing demand for high-performance metal replacement plastics in electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. In these exacting applications, corrosion can be a safety and security issue, potentially leading to short circuits, fire or even complete functional breakdown.
Corrosion can be a serious problem when metal conductors come in contact with particular types of plastics in certain electrical and electronic devices. Because the corrosion problem specifically concerns additives to the plastics, this has raised awareness of the issue of purity of nylon compounds and polymer formulations. The special high-purity polyamide grades of TECHNYL® PURE are designed to solve this problem.
