Long glass fiber PPA solutions for battery applications 

Solvay’s Xencor XTreme PPA LGF grades are designed to offer resistance to direct flame exposure at 1832°F (1000℃) for over 10 minutes, providing sufficient time for passengers to exit the vehicle in the event of a thermal runaway and meeting the latest global regulations in Europe, China, the United States, and other countries. The materials are designed to retain a high level of electrical insulation after exposure to flame, helping to mitigate thermal runaway in batteries. More importantly, the material has a high glass transition temperature (Tg) which enables dimensional stability of the parts under battery operating conditions. Key benefits of Xencor XTreme include high stiffness, strength and impact resistance, best-in-class electrical insulation with a comparative tracking index of >600V, and high dielectric strength.
