Greene Tweed has introduced its innovative ArlonÒ 3000 XT thermoplastic for electronics applications. The ArlonÒ 3000 XT provides a high level of thermal stability and chemical resistance, very low moisture absorption, remarkably low wear, and high impact resistance.
ArlonÒ 3000 XT is a cross-linked, semi-crystalline polyketone solution, which delivers superior high-temperature performance over other plastics used in the electronics and electrical markets (above 460◦C).
Due to its salient dielectric properties, this thermoplastic can provide better electrical insulation and dissipation, faster signal throughput, and superior noise-abating characteristics over existing materials, and is capable of load bearing over the glass transition point (Tg). It also delivers significantly reduced susceptibility to moisture and steam.
The ArlonÒ 3000 XT also aims to fulfil the increasing demand for advanced plastic materials in electronics and electrical applications. This patent pending thermoplastic is ideal for use in sensors, connectors, and high-voltage insulators.
