The new family - Crastin HR HFS - also allows designers to make components with thinner walls and allows processors to use newer technology as the material stays in the melt state even longer.
Crastin HR HFS is targeted for automotive electric and electronic components and for hybrid and electric vehicles to help meet the ongoing 'miniaturization' trend. The product debuted in high voltage shield connectors for battery packs and inverters.
'This second generation of hydrolysis resistant Crastin retains its high performance but processes like a standard Crastin grade, delivering superior flow for low-melt temperature processes, enabling reduced cycle times, a wider processing window and enhanced product quality,' said
'At KET we had originally planned to develop the parts using nylon PA66 because of its good mechanical properties, but PA66 could not meet the OEMs electrical resistance requirements under high temperature testing conditions (minimum 500 MOhm at 120-degreeC and DC 500V). Crastin HR HFS provides the solution because it has toughness and excellent electrical performance even in high temperature conditions,' said
Direct Drop-in Solutions
The Crastin HR HFS family includes Crastin HR5315HFS and Crastin HR5330HFS, with 15 and 30 percent glass-reinforcement respectively, available in natural and laser markable black. Both are impact modified with high strain-at-break values, while retaining the stiffness of a reinforced PBT. They qualify as direct drop-in solutions to replace existing Crastin HR grades in automotive connectors, electronic control units (ECUs) and fuse boxes.
