Royal DSM N.V. has today inaugurated its new Stanyl® ForTii™ Production Unit, quadrupling production capacity for Stanyl ForTii in a bid to meet market demand used in mobile phones and other electronic applications such as circuit boards used in personal computers. Stanyl ForTii is a halogen-free, flame-retarded, high-temperature polyamide. It extends the application range of current Stanyl products and helps customers to achieve a higher performance in their applications. It supports lead-free soldering and is suitable for even the most demanding surface mount technology applications in electronics.
Gart Kostermans, Project Director Stanyl ForTii says, "Stanyl ForTii supports market trends that call for miniaturization and the convergence of electronic devices. It is our expectation, based on solid customer programs in hand, that we will utilize this expansion fully in the very near future. This sustained growth pattern will drive DSM Engineering Plastics quickly to a further expansion of our Stanyl ForTii capacity.”
