New halogen/red phosphorous-free PA66 FR with superb laser printability for high performance applications

Asahi Kasei
This is a Past Webinar

The PA66 global flame retardants market is witnessing a growing trend of moving towards halogen and red phosphorous – free products, due to their environmental and health implications. Since flame retardants cover a wide range of applications, halogen and red phosphorous – free products are becoming key to create value while staying compliant to the new regulations.

To support formulators and manufacturers at global level to address the ongoing changing circumstances, Asahi Kasei has developed LEONA™ SN Series. The new, innovative PA66 FR product is free of halogen and red phosphorous. It shows excellent mechanical proprieties, superb laser printability and laser transparency, high retention rate of physical properties after water absorbed condition, and more.

By attending this webinar, you will learn how the use of LEONA™ SN Series can lead to improved printability through clearer laser marking on gloss surfaces, and because of less mold deposit, how the physical characteristics of LEONA™ can reduce the frequency of production equipment maintenance and replacement.

Join us to discover the potential of LEONA™ SN Series with evidence – based examples of its performance.
