VAMPAMID™ 12 0024 V0 HL: an halogen free solution for the railway market
VAMP TECH has always been very focused on the development of new compounds basically referring to the new European regulation of rail transport, EN45545-2:2015.
VAMP TECH has developed the new VAMPAMID ™ 12 0024 V0 HL, a grade based on plasticized and flame retardant PA12 without halogens. The material shows excellent mechanical properties (comparable to those of a non-flame retardant plasticized PA12) together with excellent fire resistance properties. The use of a halogen-free flame retardant system gave the possibility to have the HL2 certification (low density / toxicity of the fumes and an oxygen index LOI> 28%) for R22 and R23, according to the regulations of the rail transport EN45545-2.This is an excellent result which makes the material suitable for making electrical/electrotechnical components (especially corrugated pipes), which can also be used inside train cabins.
