Electric Vehicle Charging Plugs

Manufacturers of electric vehicle charging infrastructure are seeking to improve performance and reduce costs without compromising on aesthetics. Advanced polyamides with flame retardant (FR) additives are a popular choice for EV charging plugs, but the downsides versus additive-free materials include: poor surface appearance from UV exposure, lower mechanical performance, limited color options, and higher cost.

Envalior’s Akulon® PA6 and PA66 material solutions offer a superior and proven alternative to common FR materials used in EV Charging Plugs. The Akulon® family of engineering materials delivers durable, affordable and versatile performance. For peace of mind, they are also tested to meet or exceed the latest UL and IEC standards for fire and electrical safety.
