Huntsman launches new fire retardant TPU for consumer electronics

07 April 2010

Huntsman Polyurethanes has developed a new fire retardant, halogen free thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that complies with current safety standards for cable jacketing materials used in the IT and consumer electronics sector.
Complying with key criteria set out in the European RoHS directive and US VW1 standard, IROGRAN A95P5003DP meets demand for a durable cabling material that is free from hazardous substances. Far safer in the event of a fire than conventional materials like PVC and brominated flame-retardants, the new TPU is a low-smoke product that is easy to process.
The new technology will be launched at Wire 2010 (April 12-16 in Dusseldorf, Germany), the international wire and cable exhibition. IROGRAN A95P5003DP can be extruded at high speeds on conventional PVC processing equipment and has a good surface quality. This makes it ideal for use in both cable power systems and injection molding for electronic devices including plasma screens, mobile phones, MP3 players, digital cameras and laptops.
