Polyonics has introduced XF-611, a white polyester, halogen-free label material designed to meet the UL 94 VTM-0 level of flame retardants. The addition of the XF-611 to the Polyonics flame retardant product line is designed to provide customers with a lower cost alternative to the XF-603 (polyimide) while still exhibiting the same level of flame retardant properties. The XF-611 is a 1.5 mil white polyester label material designed for thermal transfer and flexographic printing. When matched with the proper inks or halogen-free thermal ribbons, the printed image on the XF-611 will withstand harsh chemicals and solvents typically found in the electronic manufacturing process. The XF-611 complies with the requirements of RoHS, REACH, and is certified to be halogen free to the IEC 61249-2-21 levels.
