Technyl® ORANGE

50 SHADES OF TECHNYL® ORANGE FOR SAFER ELECTRIC VEHICLES

In powertrain electrification systems, parts representing a potential electric shock hazard must be instantly recognisable to alert production line employees, after-sales personnel and car owners. We have adapted our electrical safety polymer offering to meet regional regulations with specific shades of orange to identify these products at first sight.
Discover Technyl® Orange, a brand-new range of fire-resistant products for high-voltage automotive components and cabling in electric vehicles. The new palette of orange pigmented Technyl® grades offers reliable color retention, laser-marking, flame-retardancy, high heat and fatigue resistance. Orange is the new Black!

MAIN BENEFITS

  • Resistance to fire and high voltage
  • Customizable and perfectly stabilized orange pigments
  • Fast cycle time, suitable for laser marking

HALOGEN-FREE ORANGE SOLUTIONS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

Brand new Technyl® Orange family in standard RAL shades target applications such as cables, connectors, charge plugs and sockets, converter housings, sensors and insulators. Our materials are available in RAL 2003 for vehicles in Europe RAL 2008/2011 for exports to North America. This customizable range include various halogen-free grades of Technyl® One and Technyl Star® based technologies.
Technyl® Orange presents UL941 V0 flammability ratings at wall thickness as low as 0.4 mm: such performance increases the potential for miniaturization of electrical and connection components in EVs and HEVs, without compromising safety. All grades feature excellent color stability, low mold deposit and a comparative tracking index (CTI) of 600 volts or greater.
