Thermally conductive and flame-retardantAnother topic at the LANXESS stand is the new line of Durethan TC (thermally conductive) polyamides for thermal management. “One highlight among these products is the new polyamide 6, Durethan TP 723-620. This combines excellent light reflection and thermal conductivity with very good flame retardance based on a halogen-free, flame-retardant package,” explains Radeck. Potential applications include heat-dissipating components, such as heat sinks and LED modules.
