Thermally conductive thermoplastic polyester

  • 04-Jan-2013 04:33 EST

Arnite PET XL-T, the thermally conductive thermoplastic polyester from DSM Engineering Plastics, offers automotive electronics developers and designers a solution in overcoming heat management issues in such components as fog lamp housings, lens holders, and adaptive forward lighting frames. Combining high heat resistance (HHR) with low out-gassing, Arnite PET XL-T provides a new alternative to metals and more exotic HHR materials most often used in such applications. According to DSM, in actual use it shows a performance approaching those of more expensive HHR thermoplastics such as polyphenylene sulphide and polyetherimides, and it does not suffer from moisture absorption issues that commonly arise with polyphthalamides.
