    UL listed meeting f1 and f2

    The importance of public transport by train, metro or tram is becoming more and more important due to continuously growing cities worldwide. As a consequence, demands on plastics for railway applications are increasing, too. Great importance is attached to maximum possible fire protection owing to the increasing number of passengers.
    The harmonised standard EN 45545-2 defines different hazard levels depending on the requirements on and hazard potential of the respective application. Hazard level 3 (HL3) represents the highest performance category. Supply lines and high voltage components are subject to risk phrase R22 (indoors) and R23 (outside). Here, the use of halogen-free, fire retardant polyamides has become mostly prevalent.
    Bada AG has got a broad portfolio of reinforced and unreinforced polyamides specifically adapted for the railway sector that all fully meet the requirements of HL3. These materials are future-proof as they significantly fall below the required limit values even if the legislator will further tighten them.

    GAPEKK – Polyether Ketone Ketone

    Tel. 01425 403543

    GAPEKKTM combines high temperature stability, strength, stiffness and ease of processing. PEKK has superior temperature resistance than other Ketone base polymers (PEK & PEEK). It has excellent compressive strength, creep resistance, wear and radiation resistance and also inherent flame retardancy.

    With a glass transition temperature of 176°C and a melting temperature of 395°C, GAPEKKTM polymer delivers extended high temperature mechanical performance over standard PEKK polymer and chemical resistance. Available as unfilled, glass filled and carbon filled grades.

    G-PAEK – Polyether Ketone

    Tel. 01425 403543

    Gharda’s G-PAEK product family is based on Polyether Ketone (PEK), a semi-crystalline polymer, with a high glass transition temperature of 152°C and melting temperature of 372°C, the unfilled G-PAEK grades offer solutions to many high temperature and chemically resistant applications.

    Additionally, we offer various value-added filled grades with improved strength for demanding opportunities that require high wear resistance. The heat deflection temperature of these grades can be as high as 360°C, providing strength and stability in extreme conditions. The array of Gharda G-PAEK product family provides a wide range of options to customers along with customized solutions wherever required.

    Unfilled grades are available as powders or pellets. Filled grades are available as dry blends and compounded pellets.
