Electrical & Electronic

Moving electricity safely and reliably, whether to power a manufacturing robot or the circuitry behind a smart home device, comes down to the quality and performance of the materials used.

From large-scale electrical to miniature electronic applications, our full polyamide solutions portfolio performs better at keeping circuits operating reliably and safely under a variety of conditions. With a unique mix of properties, including best-in-class electrical insulation and flame retardancy that meets the highest international standards, Vydyne®, Starflam® and HiDura™ are the ideal materials for applications in new energy, consumer technology, e-mobility, residential and commercial.

Applications

New energy

Solar panels, wind turbines and large-scale power storage spend decades outside producing, discharging and storing energy. Components, like connectors and brackets, need to withstand the demands of day-to-day operation as well as possible power surges and extreme weather. Our UV resistant, impact-modified and electrically neutral materials ensure new energy infrastructure performs reliably for the long term. 

Consumer technology

From washing machines to light bulbs to cameras, devices are gaining smart features. Our high flow solutions enable smaller footprints and miniaturization. Starflam® flame retardant grades make this possible by offering excellent electrical and safety performance down to 0.2 mm thickness.

E-mobility

The high voltage necessary to run hybrid and electric vehicles takes its toll on connectors and switches, often causing corrosion. With several grades tested against the highest electrical requirements, our flame-retardant and corrosion-resistant polyamides are ideal for high-voltage applications. Ascend offers a broad portfolio of engineered plastics helping make EVs safer and go farther.

Residential and commercial

Higher population density and a proliferation of electronic devices are putting higher demands on residential and commercial electrical systems. Our materials are designed to perform to the highest standards to ensure safe power management and prevent critical failures. New circuit and power management components require color and laser marking for aesthetic and identification purposes. And we have the colors and laser markable grades to meet your design requirements
