Tailored solutions to meet your unique needs

In light of stringent sustainability legislation and the need to reduce weight and costs in production of electronic components, plastics have become the material of choice for internals such as housings, enclosures, sockets, switches and wiring components. In these applications, designers are looking for thermoplastics that dissipate charge and provide barriers to electromagnetic energy. The challenge is to convert inherently insulating thermoplastic materials into a product that provides anti-static or electrostatic dissipation or EMI/RFI shielding, or combination of these two properties. At Tosaf, we have extensive research and development capabilities and can offer solutions for multiple grades of materials to meet the unique demands of the electrical and electronic industries.

Dielectric Strength

Polymeric compounds used for insulation need high dialectic strength, coupled with low dielectric loss, in addition to being easy to process. It is also becoming increasingly important that the compound be recyclable. what about Tosaf?

Low VOC Emissions

As electrical appliances heat up during operation, they can release volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous chemical substances. These can have an adverse effect on internal air quality, which has for many years been recognized as a major cause of health problems. We are careful to select additives, colorants and base polymers with low VOC content that are suitable for use in electrical appliances.

Esthetics

Differentiation in design and style is essential in creating consumer appeal for electronic and electrical goods. As a leading supplier of color, black and functional masterbatches, we are the partner of choice to the electrical and electronics sector.

Superior mechanical properties

Whatever polymer you are using, we can formulate our compounds and masterbatches to give you the optimal balance of mechanical properties, such as tensile, flexural, impact, hardness, creep resistance, heat deflection temperature, hysteresis and thermal mechanical.

Our Solutions

FR

Flame Retardants

Considering new regulations around the world, our high concentration FR masterbatches including halogen-based and halogen-free solutions, provide self-extinguishing properties and meet market needs.

Highlights

  • Recyclable

  • Halogen free option

  • Suppressed smoke formation

  • Good process ability

  • Reduced incidence of fire

UV

UV Light Stabilizer Masterbatch

Long-term exposure to UV radiation compromises the integrity of plastic, making it brittle and prone to cracking or breaking. The masterbatches in Tosaf’s UV light stabilizer range eliminate or vastly reduce the effects of UV radiation and photo-oxidation, offering long-term polymer protection.

Highlights

  • Prevents premature polymer degrading and failure

  • Minimizes deterioration of mechanical properties

  • Extends high-quality surface appearance

LM

Laser Marking

Laser marking offers shorter marking cycles and lower-energy marking than other methods, and for some polymers it is the only feasible marking option. Whereas standard laser marking products typically offer either dark (light grey to black) marking on a light (or translucent) background, or light (light grey to white) or colorful marking on a dark (black) background, Tosaf offers a complete series of laser marking masterbatches, for use with a wide range of polymers and applications.

Highlights

  • Fast, Accurate and Precise

  • High Contrast and High Resolution

  • Applicable to Most Polymers

  • Permanent and irremovable

TM

Thermal Management

Control thermal loading in black and other-colored surfaces. Tosaf’s range of polymer masterbatches maintain dimensional stability, weather resistance, impact resistance and are anti-electrostatic, while adhering to aesthetic criteria and without making concessions to processability.

Highlights

  • Maintains dimensional stability

  • Weather and impact resistant

  • Anti-electrostatic

LF

Low Friction

High-speed, low-friction jacketing technology provides significant cost savings to the electrical contractor and added flexibility to installation. Our ranges of color and black masterbatches incorporate low-friction additives that are ideally suited for use in electronic components.

Highlights

  • Cost effective

  • Wide range of color and black masterbatches available

  • Incorporates low-friction additives
