    Will your EV Charging Stations and Plugs comply with the new U.S. standard?

    Explore our Blogs

    The U.S. is to propose standards for government funded EV Charging projects. By 2030, the Biden administration wants 50% of all new vehicles sold to be electric or plug-in hybrid electric models and 500,000 new EV charging stations. High-voltage charging, and aesthetics are key requirements and one of the challenges to overcome is how to combine flame retardance properties with reliable performance and aesthetics. This is when changing the design and using the right materials makes all the difference. Text displayed

    Using ocean waste to make more sustainable furniture

    Explore our Blogs

    Each year, more than 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the world’s oceans. Much of the waste culminates in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which covers an area twice the size of Texas and three times the size of France. Abandoned fishing nets are a growing part of this problem, and the World Wildlife Federation estimates they account for as much as 46% of the waste in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Text displayed

    Understanding strength formation during injection molding helps prevent weldline problems

    Explore our Blogs

    Weldline strength plays a crucial role when designing new parts or evolving the design of failed parts. During the injection molding process, the part geometry and obstacles to the melt flow may cause the melt to separate and rejoin. Thus, a weldline will be formed, potentially impairing the final part’s mechanical properties. Our Weldline Strength Tool can help you prevent weldline problems. Text displayed

    Stanyl® minimizes fire hazards when fast charging devices using USB-C connectors

    Explore our Blogs

    Manufacturers are increasing charging speeds of smartphones, laptops and tablets. When fast charging devices have a charging standard of more than 18 Watts, they are charged much quicker and the cables and connectors used must be able to handle the higher voltage and be compatible with the device’s and charger’s fast charging standard. Connector manufacturers need to select insulating materials specifically developed to minimize the risk of fires that can potentially lead to serious accidents, costly recalls and severe damage to the brand’s reputation.

    Reducing the risk of electronic failure in vehicles with halide-free materials

    Explore our Blogs

    As automotive electronics become more powerful and complex, they generate higher power levels and more heat, increasing the risk of electrical failure and fire. Some suppliers use ionic additives to improve the thermal and flame retardant performance of the components used. These additives can form acids that corrode electrical contacts after prolonged exposure to heat and moisture, causing an electronic component to fail or change its characteristics, which may compromise a vehicle safety feature, such as a sensor.

    Polyamide materials are hygroscopic—these materials take up moisture from a relative humid atmosphere or water, and release water into a dry atmosphere. For proper application designs, engineers want to be able to predict moisture uptake for polymides and know how it affects material performance in specific applications. With our Moisture Diffusion Tool, you can calculate the absorption and diffusion of moisture in polyamide materials as a function of time, position and temperature, for both 'as molded' and 'fully annealed' samples.

    Is a magnesium-shortage tsunami about to slam the automotive industry?

    Explore our Blogs

    Approximately 90% of the world’s supply of magnesium comes from China, and since September magnesium smelters there have either shut down or halved their production capacities due to the energy crisis. The current shortage has resulted in record prices and supply chain issues in the EU.

    Explore our Blogs

    To enhance materials used for timing drive systems, PTFE is often added as a micro-powder to improve the material’s friction and wear properties. But, there are environmental and safety concerns about PTFE since some manufacturing processes produce PFOA, which is linked to serious health risks. Thus, regulatory bodies in several countries are expected to ban materials containing PFOA by 2022. There is a material solution with proven wear and friction properties that complies with these upcoming regulations. Text displayed

    Advanced wound care dressings improve treatment for patients that experience frequent or long-lasting wounds. Film strips inside dressings, which are permeable to moisture vapor and air but keep bacteria and viruses out, accelerate the healing process. Thermoplastic polyurethane is widely used to manufacturer these films. Yet, in addition to its sustainability drawbacks, improving this material’s moisture vapor transmission rate performance is time- and cost-intensive. Text displayed

    Enhancing USB-C connector performance and reliability with Stanyl®

    Since USB-C connectors process power levels from 40 to 100 Watts, they’re also more susceptible to electrical tracking, which may lead to premature part failure, or eventually create a fire hazard. As a result, consumer electronics developers need assurance that connectors designed to charge their devices won’t need to be recalled or frequently replaced. Text displayed

    EU rules will make connectors more sustainable to reduce electronic waste, and make consumers’ lives easier

    Explore our Blogs

    Soon consumers in the EU will be able to use one common charging port—the USB Type-C connector—for most of their electronics charging needs. Recently, Parliament and Council negotiators agreed that by autumn of 2024, USB Type-C connector will become the common charging port for many electronics. Although USB Type-C connectors rapidly restore electronic battery life, these connectors can create a fire hazard if made of low-performance insulating plastics. Learn about materials solutions that increase safety and enable you to deliver high-performance connectors with stringent design requirements. Text displayed
