Vydyne® ECO366 is modified with ignition-resistant additives to help users meet Underwriters Laboratories flammability rating requirements for molded parts requiring UL 94 V-0 classification at thicknesses down to 0.4 mm (0.016ʺ).
ECO366 has been designed to have outstanding flow properties for excellent mold filling of thin-walled or intricate parts. Cycle time may be reduced relative to competitive materials, lowering the manufacturing costs for processors. ECO366 has a high use temperature for soldering and other applications where the material is exposed to high temperatures. ECO366 is heat stabilized for applications requiring long-term heat stability.
Vydyne® ECO366 has a comparatively low specific gravity for an ignition-resistant resin. Meaningful economic comparisons of molding materials must be based on cost per cubic inch, which is reduced by lowered specific gravity.
Mold shrinkage of ECO366 is essentially equivalent to that of general-purpose PA66 resins, which are commonly used in many electrical/electronic components and other parts requiring a UL 94 V-2 flammability rating. Thus, existing tooling for UL 94 V-2 PA66 parts can usually be used to produce UL 94 V-0 parts from Vydyne ECO366, eliminating the delay and costs involved in re-tooling.
Application End Uses
Typical applications include electrical connectors, terminal blocks, housings, circuit board standoffs, clips, clamps, fasteners, cable ties and many other industrial parts.
