Lanxess Expands Its Range of Flame-Retardant Plastics

September 29 2021

LANXESS is expanding its range of flame-retardant compounds to include material variants that offer a high degree of flame resistance in glow wire tests performed according to this standard.

The latest addition to this range is the halogen-free, flame-retardant Durethan BKV30FN34, which is aimed primarily at users who – for safety reasons – prefer glow wire testing on the end product in accordance with the strict conditions and requirements of the standard for domestic appliances.

This polyamide 6 compound offers tremendous safety reserves thanks to its high degree of flame resistance. The glow wire resistance of this new polyamide 6 has already been certified by VDE Pruef- und Zertifizierungsinstitut GmbH (German Association of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Information Technology) with a GWIT value of 775 °C for wall thicknesses of between 0.4 and 3.0 millimeters (Glow Wire Ignition Temperature, IEC 60695-2-13). Another advantage of this material is its high tracking resistance of 600 V (CTI A, Comparative Tracking Index, IEC 60112), which reduces the risk of short circuits and defects caused by creepage currents. This allows designers to make electrical and electronic modules more compact, in turn reducing the size of the final product.
