Ticona Engineering Polymers is offering a new, low-viscosity grade of Fortron polyphenylene sulfide to meet demand for low-halogen materials.
Ticona says the new Fortron 1140LC6 is a drop-in replacement in existing molds for its recently introduced low-chlorine Fortron. The new grade contains less than 900 parts per million of bromine and chlorine and satisfies the UL94 V-0 flammability rating without the addition of flame retardants. It also withstands temperatures up to 518° F. End uses include connectors, switches and applications such as jigs for semiconductor production.
