New “no flame” compounds


Vamp Tech has presented a range of “no flame” compounds (GWT>750 °C according to EN 60-335 4th edition) characterized by notable broadness of technical solutions and innovation. The presented compounds include economically advantageous proposals on PP base, unfilled or reinforced with glass fibre with UL94-V0 certification up to 0.8 mm and GWIT/GWFI certified on UL yellow paper. The range of PA6 includes both the unfilled version VAMPAMID 6 0023 V0 H GW, with hinge effect and UL94-V0 certification at 0.4 mm, with the 30% of glass fibre. The range of “no flame” PA66 is the widest that the market offers and includes FR with halogens, with red phosphorous and FR free both from halogens and from red phosphorous, thus permitting to satisfy any technical and economic design requisite. Concerning the halogen compounds, they are available both the unfilled version, VAMPAMID 66 0023 V0 H GW, UL94-V0 at 0.4 mm with hinge effect and the version with 25% of glass fibre, VAMPAMID 66 2526 V0. Both products have the UL yellow paper with RTI 140 °C and are VDE certified for the compliance with the EN 60-335 regulation 4th edition.
The “no flame” version with red phosphorous, very competitive for the price/performance ratio, is VAMPAMID 66 2530 V0 P GW and passes without problems also the GWT test at 750 °C on the piece, as certified by IMQ. This product, even if the natural colour is brick red, is available in the blue, grey, green, brown and black colours. Besides, for those who look at the future and at the regulations concerning the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), VAMPAMID 66 3028 V0 HF with FR system developed at Vamp Tech, besides being UL94-V0 certified, allows passing the GWIT (Glow Wire Ignition Temperature) test also at 775 °C without flame, as reported on the UL yellow card of the product. Finally, the reinforced compounds on PA6T and PA10T base (the latter of vegetal origin) allow implementing electrical “no flame” components that operate in challenging thermal conditions reaching temperatures close to 300 °C and with mechanical performances that make them alternative to metals.
