Thermal resistance, flame resistance, certifications

all that the Electrical and Lighting segments need

If your Company works in the Electrotechnical or Lighting segment and is in search of a partner that listens to and understands your needs and the needs of your application, willing to satisfy them at the best; talk to us!

Decades of experience matured in the Electrical segment in the wider sense of the word, with active participation to CEI-IEC TC89 committee responsible for fire standards on plastics; makes us a prepared counterpart for the identification of best polymers for your application.

The ETPs (such as Polycarbonate, PAs and PC/ABS standard or reinforced) are very well known and appreciated products in Low Voltage applications such as: bases and supports, lighting chassis and bodies, metering and control housings, control panels, emergency lights bodies, and several other applications where ever a perfect shape and high dimensional stability are required.

For any plastic application you would like to make, do not hesitate to call us for a verification.
We work also with tailored products able to precisely answer any standard need of these segments, such as:

  • REACH, RoHS compliance
  • conformity with most required quality certifications
  • conformity with IEC standards (International Electrotechnical Committee)* for finished products
    * The most popular IEC standard in this segment are: CTI (Comparative Tracking Index), ignition test like GWT-NFT, self extinguish test (UL94-IEC), surface softening (BPT), different IP test (hammer impact test).

Our Xvalue® family has been developed to satisfy the needs of the Electrotechnical industry, which is strategic for any Country. In this family a range of PA6 is present made for industrial plugs and sockets in 9 base colors, with the possibility to expand the range to new ones. This is the an additional value for you.
