BASF launches busbar holders with newly developed TPU overmolding

BASF has introduced new busbar holders featuring a newly developed thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) overmolding.

Elastollan R 2600 FHF is a halogen-free and UL 94 V-0 compliant TPU. It has an optimized thermal linear expansion coefficient which “reduces the risk of cracks occurring during temperature changes.”

BASF says Elastollan R 2600 FHF offersseveral advantages in comparison to polyphenylene sulfide—it can be processed at a lower temperature, is less dense, and can be easily colored.

“Like several other Elastollan grades, the new Elastollan can be simulated by our Ultrasim tool,” said Segment Marketing Manager Dr. Thomas Bayerl. “We use this tool to support our customers in the design of components. As a result, production steps can be saved and the full potential of the material can be utilized.”
