High-performance Flame-retardant Materials

A key focus area of the show is the company’s latest developments in high performance flame-retardant materials to meet increasing regulatory requirements. Ascend offers two best-in-class unreinforced flame-retardant products for electrical and electronic applications: Vydyne ECO366H and Vydyne FR350J.
  • Introduced in late 2017, Vydyne FR350J is designed for use in unattended electrical appliance connectors and achieves the highest GWIT (glow wire ignition temperature) rating with zero flame and exhibits a GWEPT (glow wire end-product temperature) rating of 775 C.
  • Vydyne ECO366H is a non-halogenated flame-retardant nylon 6,6 with an excellent RTI electrical rating of 150 C, making it an ideal solution for connectors and terminal blocks.

Scott Rook, Ascend’s vice president of nylon, said:
“Our E&E products are expanding the performance and processing capabilities of PA66. Vydyne FR350J offers excellent finished part performance and is also very easy to process, saving our customers time and money.”

Both materials were the subject of a presentation, Setting a new standard with flame-retardant nylon 6,6, on Monday, May 7.
