Ticona Engineering Polymers has developed a low-warpage Vectra liquid crystal polymer as part of its expansion of halogen-free polymers for electrical and electronic uses.
Vectra E488i is aimed at parts such as electronic central processing unit sockets and dual in-line memory module connectors. It improves part flatness to maintain very tight dimensional tolerances after soldering temperatures of 500° F.
Other advantages include high flow, ability to mold thin walls and fast cycle times, the Florence, Ky., company claimed.
