Flame Retardance, Functional Toughness, and Long-term Stability
EPX 86FR is a flame-retardant resin with an unmatched combination of functional toughness, high strength, and long-term stability. It works well in a variety of applications for consumer, automotive and industrial markets that require UL 94 V-0 or FAR 25.853(a) ratings.
UL 94 V-0
@ 2 mm
Ultimate Tensile Strength
Elongation At Break
Impact Strength (Notched)
Heat Deflection Temperature
EPX 86FR passes UL 94 V-0 @ 2 mm and FAR 25.853(a) Vertical Burn @ 1 mm with flame-retardant and self-extinguishing features.
EPX 86FR is heat resistant with an HDT of 135°C and excellent retention of material properties during high-temperature aging, temperature/humidity cycling, and thermal shock.
EPX 86FR shows no surface blemishes and minimal change in tensile properties after chemical exposure simulating splash contact per USCAR-2 conditions.

EPX 86FR Sample Kit
This rigid kit includes a tow cap and battery case made from our new V0 flame retardant material with unmatched toughness, strength and thermal stability.
These applications combine a need for flame-retardance, functional toughness, and temperature endurance, in addition to isotropy, smooth surface finish, and accuracy.
Cable clips for consumer electronics and automobiles require flame-retardance, toughness, stiffness, temperature resistance, accuracy, and occasionally chemical resistance.
High-speed Data Connectors
This T2 connector for automobiles requires UL 94 V-0 rating, thermal endurance, chemical resistance, high accuracy and functional toughness.
Housings and Brackets
Demanding housings and brackets for electronics often requires flame-retardance, stiffness, temperature resistance, accuracy, and a great surface finish.
