Electronics Housing for Washing Machine Control Panels

OEMGorenje d. d., Velenje (Slovenia)
Plastics used for live components in domestic appliances which are left unattended, such as refrigerators, washing machines and dishwashers, must satisfy the IEC 60335-1 standard for domestic appliances, which has recently been made more stringent. This is a high requirement for most polyamide formulations – primarily because of the glowing wire test requirement which, among other things, specifies a GWIT value (glow-wire ignition temperature) of 775 °C.

LANXESS Deutschland GmbH developed two PA 66 grades, Durethan® DP2802/30 and Durethan® DP2801, which not only meet the standard but are also halogen-free in line with the present trend for using halogen-free plastics in electrical and electronic equipment.
