Electrical systems

Electrical systems

Electrical systems are estimated to be the cause of around one fifth of all fires

Electrical faults like short-circuiting and arcing release sufficient energy to ignite commonly used polymers in electronic equipment, household appliances or electrical installations. Therefore, safety requirements demand the use of flame resistant materials in proximity to live parts, connectors etc. In addition to using metals or ceramics, flame retarded polymers are often chosen, because they have excellent technical properties and are economically attractive.

Pinfa members work together to take forward joint projects and action. Experts from Pinfa member companies cooperate with PIN flame retardant users in different industry sectors, environmental NGOs, scientists and other interested stakeholders.
