ForTii® F12

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by DSM
ForTii® F12 by DSM is a halogen-free, red phosphorous-free, flame retardant polyamide 4T (PA4T) grade reinforced with 40% glass fiber. Is suitable for processing by injection molding. Possesses high stiffness and good dimensional stability. Shows good flow (one of the highest flows of any halogen-free polyamide), fast crystallization, shorter cycle times, low moisture absorption, long term heat ageing performance and good weld line strength. Exhibits high thermal stability, high stiffness at elevated temperatures, high toughness, excellent chemical resistance and is also resistant against calcium chloride. ForTii® F12 is ideal for Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lead-free reflow soldering. It brings the second best moisture sensitivity level (MSL2) acc. IPC/JEDEC J-STD 020D for SMT in the most demanding applications. Used in automotive and in electrical and electronic applications like FPC connectors and actuators. Meets the highest MSL-level (MSL1) for SMT and ISO 1043 for PA4T.
