DSM presents halogen-free engineering plastics for electronic and electrical applications

July 01/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Royal DSM announces a broad portfolio of halogen free materials for electronics and electrical applications, said the producer in its press-release.

By eliminating substances of potential hazardous concern, DSM makes a significant contribution to solutions that reduce the environmental impact of e-waste and address the customer drive for more sustainable solutions.

The electronics and electrical industry is facing growing regulatory demands and OEM requests related to the elimination of substances of hazardous concern, requiring, for example, halogen-free technology and solutions for lead-free soldering.

Moreover, producers of key electronic components, such as connectors, sockets, wire & cables, low voltage switch gear devices and, more specifically, enclosures of MCB, MCCB and other Industrial Control Gear devices and LED lighting, are looking to advance miniaturization, system cost reduction and integration of components. This requires materials with higher mechanical, thermal and processing performance over conventional halogen-free high temperature polyamide materials, such as higher temperature performance and flow, thin wall strength, high reflectivity and Glow Wire Ignition Temperature (GWIT) at end use part level.

DSM has recently introduced its new thermally conductive thermoplastic polyester for such components, as foglamp housings, lens holders and AFL (Adaptive Forward Lighting) frames.

We remind that, as MRC wrote previously, DSM is going to invest about EUR100 million in three new R&D facilities in Delft and Sittard-Geleen (both in the Netherlands) over the next two years.

DSM delivers innovative solutions that nourish, protect and improve performance in global markets such as food and dietary supplements, personal care, feed, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, automotive, paints, electrical and electronics, life protection, alternative energy and bio-based materials.
