New, Easy-To-Use FX Series Makes Casting Perfectly Molded Flame Retardant Parts Simpler Than Ever | New UL 94 V-0 Compliant Materials

FX-8060, FX-8070, FX-8080, and FX-8090 are Shore 60:90A materials that comply with the UL 94 V-O flammability standard. Featuring excellent tear strength and elongation, FX Series casting systems were developed with ease-of-mind  produce long-lasting, fire retardant goods such as electronic parts, medical devices, gaming machine components, and much more.

Innovative Polymers FX series polyurethanes exhibit easy to handle viscosities of less than 1000 cPs. Work life is 10 to 15 minutes and parts cast from the new products can be demolded in about three hours. Once cured, the flame retardant systems exhibit excellent tear strength and elongation properties of 200% or higher (see Fig. 1).
