Three Valox ENH PBT resin grades, with different
glass reinforcement levels, utilize non-brominated and non-chlorinated FR technology.
The resins meet the UL94 V0 standard
at 0.8 mm. With a comparative tracking index (CTI) of 500 volts for Valox ENH
4530 resin and a CTI of 600 volts for Valox ENH 3500 and Valox ENH 4560 resins, standard glass-filled brominated PBT is
typically around 200 volts. The new
Valox ENH resin grades are:
These unfilled and glass-filled grades have potential
for use in electric cooling fans, relays, connectors, switches and fuser
applications in printers.
to SABIC Innovative Plastics' Valox ENH resin grades can be enhanced by combining them with other SABIC Innovative Plastics PBT technologies,
particularly Valox iQ resins. This iQ technology is referred to as "upcycled
technology" because it incorporates high levels of post-consumer polyethylene
terephthalate (PET) bottles into PBT resin through a proprietary
chemical process. Upcycling not only diverts waste from landfills but also
reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and energy usage when
producing PBT resin. Valox iQ NH 4550 is made from upcycled post consumer PET.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
