Evaluating Halogen-Free Materials to Satisfy Flame Resistance Requirements for Today's Green Electronics
Companies have been using Brominated Flame Retardant (BFRs) in electronic products for decades to reduce the risk of fire-related injury and damage. But these days, in an effort to "go green" and protect the environment, many companies are switching to non-Halogen-based flame retardants in their Printed Wiring Board (PWB) applications. The question is, what impact can that have on your designs, your manufacturing operations, and the bottom line?
This powerful Webinar will explore the environmental impact of flame retardants and current trends in the industry. It will also explain the trade-offs involved in selecting brominated vs. phosphorus retardants to comply with today's strict safety standards, discuss some of the barriers and technical challenges that suppliers are facing when bringing new products to market, and reveal which facts will ultimately determine the fate of green electronics."
