Fibre filled and non-filled resins offer high CTI for electrical applications
25 October 2010
SABIC Innovative Plastics has released three new sustainable additions to its Valox ENH resin series. These include 3500 PBT resin, non-filled; 4530 PBT resin, 15 percent glass fibre reinforced, and 4560 PBT resin, 30 percent glass fibre reinforced. All three meet the UL94 V0 standard at 0.8 mm.
With a comparative tracking index (CTI) of 500V for Valox ENH 4530 resin and a CTI of 600V for Valox ENH 3500 and Valox ENH 4560 resins, these grades far surpass the CTI performance of standard glass-filled brominated PBT, which is typically around 200V.
These non-filled and glass-filled grades have potential for use in electric cooling fans, relays, connectors, switches and fuser applications in printers.
