Small-Scale Flammability Testing of Polyester and Polyamide Formulations Used in Electrical Connector Applications 2007-01-1234
This paper addresses small-scale flammability testing of materials used in electrical connector applications. It discusses existing technology that is available to potentially improve fire safety in response to challenges posed by changing materials and technology. The focus of this paper is the flammability of polyester and polyamide. Several different small-scale flammability tests were used to evaluate these materials and set a basis for future small-scale and full-scale evaluations.
