Ampacet introduces ELTech Orange 2003 PBT masterbatch for high voltage PBT connectors

Ampacet introduces ELTech…

Ampacet, a global masterbatch leader, has launched ELTech Orange 2003 PBT, specifically designed for high voltage orange PBT electrical & electronic equipment.  

The rapid evolution and growth of the e-mobility industry sector, including hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and fully electric vehicles (EVs), have underscored possible electrical shock risks.  Orange RAL 2003 has been selected as one market color reference to highlight possible hazards and electrical shock risks when handing under-the-hood cables and connectors.

Electrical connectors used in EVs often face severe service conditions, including extremes in voltage and temperatures, so it is critical to preserve color stability to ensure identification of high voltage hazards.

Designed to color PBT resins and natural compounds,  Ampacet ELTech Orange 2003 PBT masterbatch meets RAL 2003 Orange color specifications in order to provide easy identification of high voltage hazards.  It also performs well under thermal stress and maintains color consistency in heat aging.

ELTech Orange 2003 PBT masterbatch (7400269-E) is suited for applications such as medium and high voltage PBT connectors for EVs, PBT cable jacketing and other high quality PBT electrical & electronic equipment.
