Self-extinguishing at low thicknesses: introducing V0HF1X

In the dynamic landscape of electronics, innovation is paramount to address the demands of miniaturization, automation, and hyperconnection.
Following this trend, LATI developed a new thermoplastic compound: V0HF1X, a revolutionary solution for self-extinguishing at low thicknesses.


Shaping the future of electronics

New trends in electronics highlight the rise of complex, integrated applications in compact housing. The progressive reduction in plastic wall thicknesses, often by a few tenths of a millimeter, requires advanced materials that can guarantee high mechanical, electrical, and thermal performance along with solid resistance to fire, glow wire, and creeping currents.


LATI's product portfolio

LATI's renowned portfolio of flame-resistant compounds, with minimal environmental impact, is known as V0HF1. Available across PA6, PA66, PBT, and PPA, these compounds boast UL94-V0 certification for thicknesses up to 0.75 mm, GWIT 775°C at 1 and 2 mm, and a creep current resistance (CTI) of 600V.


The future of self-extinguishing materials

For demanding sectors, such as next-generation connectivity or integrated electronics with demanding over-molding requirements, LATI has developed V0HF1X. This innovative family of glass-fiber reinforced PA66-based compounds ensure self-extinguishing capabilities up to thicknesses of 0.4 mm without compromising other properties. Leading the charge is LATAMID 66 H2 G/25-V0HF1X, the first product in this line. Engineered for high mechanical performance and strict electronic safety standards, it maintains optimal mechanical properties, rendering it suitable for snap-fit assemblies and high-stress applications.
