The safety and environment insurance for digital cities

The safety and environment insurance for digital cities

News 20.12.2018

Solvay Performance Polyamides introduces an enhanced version of Technyl® One, the company’s range of halogen-free flame-retardant materials. The new generation of products meets the challenges of the digital transformingof cities by delivering more performance, safety and environmental protection.


Technyl® One is the most innovative solution in the electrical protection market

“Rapidly-developing ‘smart technologies’ triggers an increase in safety systems and their connectivity, along with the management of a smart grid. This requires solutions that are compliant with higher levels of performance, sustainability and cost-efficiency”, says Florence Schutz, Global Market Manager for Solvay’s Performance Polyamides.“ To support the emergence of these new applicationssuch as smart meters and circuit-breakers, we have strengthened our Technyl®One range. It paves the way for more complex designs by providing improved processability and flame-retardant properties consistent with the latest safety standards while offering a halogen-free solution for sustainability.”

The new generation of Technyl®One increasesthe potential for miniaturization of electrical and connection safety systems while retaining the same level of safety. Therefore, at 0.4mm wall thickness, these devices remain compliant with UL941 V0, ensure optimal performance (Relative Thermal Index) at 150°C, and are fire resistant (Glow Wire Ignition Temperature) up to 800°C2. This material also has good environmental performance, avoiding scrap and decreasing corrosion by more than 70 percent versus a traditional high temperature halogen-free polymer.


When compared to PPA, the new generation of Technyl® Onereduces injection tool corrosion by 70 percent.

“Technyl® One is a unique and unrivalled offer on the market, ideal for systems requiring best-in-class electrical and fire properties,” highlights Schutz.“ Thanks to our solution, major players in this industry have already been able to optimizethe design of some electrical equipment, while retaining an equivalent level of safety. In some cases, OEMs changed their production process, replacing conventional materials with Technyl® One”.

The Technyl® and Technyl Star® range completes the portfolio. This range of materials exhibits excellent UL flammability ratings as well as low exudation while minimizing tooling corrosion.

Solvay Performance Polyamides offers a complete array of technical services designed to speed the time to market of new applications. This offering includes in-house UL approved labs3 formaterial certification, predictive simulation with MMI Technyl® Design4 , 3D printing of functional prototypes in Sinterline® PA6 powders as well as part testing at fully equipped APT® Technyl® Validation centers5.
