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.
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.
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.
