Applications

Contactors

Industry
Electrical
  • <ul> <li>Akulon® PA6 and ForTii® PA4T allow for reliable solutions due to good electrical and thermal endurance</li> <li>Akulon® PA6 and ForTii® PA4T allow for more design freedom and/or potential system cost reductions due to part integration and thinner wall design and lower profiles possibilities, reduced cycle time with lower production losses</li> </ul>

Residual Current device

Industry
Electrical
  • <ul> <li>Akulon® PA6 enables reliable solutions due to excellent electrical (excellent short-circuit properties, including residual dielectric strength) and thermo-mechanical endurance compared to conventional materials</li> <li>Akulon® PA6 offers system cost down opportunities versus thermosets or other engineering plastics</li> </ul>
