Are you looking for a seal or soft component for which requirements have been set for fire resistance properties, such as in electronic applications or construction products?
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) can also be used in applications that require it to be flame-retardant. There are various types of TPE available that meet the V0 requirements or have a UL certification.
Flame-retardant TPEs are also available halogen-free. The advantage of this is that smoke development is severely limited in the event of fire. Halogen-free material is a requirement for many public spaces or means of public transport.
For any questions on the options of TPE for your solution, or for more information on the theme of ‘fire retardants’, contact our material specialists.
