ForTii® T11

30% Glass Reinforced, PA4T, Electro-friendly, Halogen free and free of red phosphorous, Certified V-0 at 0.2mm

General Information

ForTii® is a breakthrough high temperature polyamide with halogen-free and halogen containing flame retardant grades for demanding applications in the electronics, lighting, automotive, white goods, industrial and aerospace industries.
We developed ForTii® in close co-operation with leading OEMs and tier 1 connector and socket manufacturers to ensure we give our customer what they want – and need.
That means a high temperature polyamide with a broad and versatile portfolio of grades that deliver high performance with a unique balance of properties.
Product

ForTii® T11 has optimal toughness and is the best solution for (auto) E&E components in harsh environments to minimize the risk of cracking and to provide design freedom and product reliability in terms of thermal shock ageing >1000 cycles. T11 passes JEDEC MSL 1 reflow performance (for specified thickness), reaches CTI ≥800V for heavy duty components, is all-color VDE approved and has electrical RTI rating of 140°C at 0,75 mm.
