According to foreign media reports, LANXESS has developed a series of laser-weldable polyamide, PBT Durethan LT and Pocan LT (laser transparent) materia.
High hydrolytic stability and excellent weldabilityHigh hydrolytic stability and excellent welding performance High hydrolytic stability and excellent welding performance
Pocan B3233XHRLT (currently Pocan TP155-002) is a new 30% glass fiber reinforced PBT composite that exhibits good laser transparency and is very resistant to corrosion in hot and humid environmen.
Currently, there are few such materials on the market, because standard hydrolytically stabilizing additives typically result in a significant reduction in the laser transparency of PBT materia.
Flame Retardant and Laser TransparencyFlame Retardant and Laser Transparency
Most flame retardants reduce the laser transparency of thermoplastics, so few commercially available PBT, polyamide 6 and polyamide 66 compounds have both good laser weldability and high flame retardan.
Dahling added: “We offer corresponding compounds based on polyamide 6, such as Durethan BKV30FN04.
Can be tailored to accommodate thicker wallsCan be tailored to accommodate thicker walls
The third new LANXESS material available for laser welding is Pocan TP150-00 This 30% glass fiber reinforced PBT compound is optimized for extremely high laser transparen.
