These days, everything relies on computers. And those computers rely on connectors. Connectors ensure efficient data flow and dependable power supply. They serve as input-output links, printed circuit board connectors or memory card bases. Or, for that matter, simply as power connections. But the trend towards ever smaller and more powerful computers also means more and more demands are being made on connectors. For one thing they need to be made extremely heat resistant. And they need to possess increasingly enhanced processing qualities. Connectors made of the high-temperature polymer VESTAMID® HTplus easily measure up to such exacting demands:
Because electronic devices made of VESTAMID® HTplus are classified flame class V0 at a wall thickness of 0.4mm, they even have no trouble withstanding lead-free solder baths of extremely high temperatures. Thus, processing is much easier and parts are faster to manufacture. In addition, the use of VESTAMID® HTplus reduces the incidence of corrosion on machines compared to the level normally occurring with other materials. Because it has a light color, VESTAMID® HTplus can be used to make not only black components, but ones in a whole array of individually colorings.
VESTAMID® HTplus is also suitable for making LCD bases, transponder casings or SMDs (surface-mounted devices). The unfilled and reinforced PPA compounds are heat resistant and predestinated for use in the interior of aircrafts, trains or ships.
