50% Glass-Filled Polyarylamide Meets Industry Demand for Halogen-Free Solution for Mobile Electronics

march 13 2012

Ixef 1524 polyarylamide (PARA) resin from Solvay Specialty Polymers USA, LLC, has received an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 94 V0 rating for electrical/electronics applications at 0.4 mm and above thicknesses for all colors. The halogen-free flame retardant (HFFR) material serves as a replacement for halogen-based flame-retardant products like glass-filled polycarbonate and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) as well as metals like aluminum and magnesium. Ixef 1524 broadens Solvay’s offering of high-performance nylons which includes Ixef 1622 and Kalix 9950, two products that are UL 94 HB-rated down to 0.6 mm.

“The UL rating positions us to meet the supply needs of customers in the electrical/electronics industry who require a non-halogenated material solution,” according to Vincent Meunier, Ixef PARA product manager for Solvay Specialty Polymers. The 50% glass-filled material is targeted for injection molded covers, internal frames, and other structural components of mobile electronic devices including media tablets, notebooks, and ultrabooks.
