Title:Head of R&D

 

In the area of electrical insulating materials for casting and potting applications thermal conductivity and flame resistant properties appear more and more as critical properties in the selection of the system to be used.
EN45545 and UL94 are examples of how the current legislations in the area of transportation and industrial applications should be taken in account together with the other materials properties to allow a robust design of the final components.
Norms and physico-chemical tests will be discussed with a special focus on materials able to fulfill these requirements.
