Whitepaper on flame retardant plastics: Discover our response to the challenging requirements of eMobility

The new powertrains demand a higher safety against electric malfunctions, which can cause the risk of an electric shock, the occurrence of electric arcs, and other potential sources of ignition. Special precautions have to be taken to increase electric vehicle safety and to prevent the ultimate worst-case scenario of a battery cell fire, a so-called thermal runaway. That is why flame-retardant polymer compounds should be considered as one of your choices for a safer electric powertrain.
