New flame retardant HIPS thermoplastics aid recycling efforts in electronics industries

RTP Company : 10 March, 2001  (New Product)
RTP Company now offers a new line of flame retardant, high-impact polystyrene thermoplastics that meet various flame ratings. The materials provide excellent colorability and physical properties, and they are fully recyclable.
RTP Company now offers a new line of flame retardant, high-impact polystyrene thermoplastics that meet various flame ratings. The materials provide excellent colorability and physical properties, and they are fully recyclable.

HIPS products can be customized to meet UL94 V-0 and V-2, and/or the IEC 695-2-1 Glow Wire test commonly required for the European market. The effectiveness of the flame retardant technology utilized in these compounds minimizes the impact on physical properties while achieving the stringent V-0 rating. These products also comply with the German Hazardous Substance Ordinance and meet the substitution requirement of the latest draft of the EU WEEE/ROS Directive on recycling, which calls for the substitution of PBDE and PBB type FR systems.

Molders and OEM's are both facing new requirements to recycle materials due to increased production of electronics and electronic equipment. Extensive research has been conducted by RTP Company's supplier to ensure excellent recycling characteristics in products with this flame retardant technology.

HIPS thermoplastics are sold unfilled or they can be modified for wear resistance, structural reinforcement, conductivity, or color to provide economical, technically-superior solutions for individual applications.

RTP Company, headquartered in Winona, Minnesota, is a global leader in specialty compounding. The company has seven manufacturing plants on three continents, plus sales representatives throughout North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific. RTP Company's engineers develop customized thermoplastic compounds in over 60 different engineering resin systems for applications requiring color, conductive, flame retardant, high temperature, shielding, structural, and wear resistant properties.
