NEW : FLAME RESISTANT NYLON 6

 

Sustamid 6FR has been tested to a number of fire regulations including the new EU rail vehicle standard, DIN EN 45545-2:2013.

 

In areas making high demands on fire behaviour - such as transport and the electrical industry - manufacturers of plant and machinery often had to get along with an alternative to nylon so missed out on its outstanding mechanical properties.

 

The material boasts a very high LOI (Limiting Oxygen Index) of 40% and is halogen free. With a UL94-VO fire rating. In addition the low density (1.17g/cm3) provides significant weight and construction benefits in comparison to conventional material, like steel (7.85g/cm3).
