Improved Chemical Resistance
UL 94 V-2 @ 1.5mm
ELECTRIC METER COVER
- Competitive material: Polycarbonate with UV resistance.
- Problem encountered: High cost.
- Other requirements: Impact strength, weather resistance, UL 94 V-2.
- TRISTAR® PC-10R-GY339(V). This exceeded all requirements.
- Tools were old, so PTS added extra release for an easier to mold material.
- Additionally, PTS was very active in terms of on-site technical service, help with lead time, inventory program and consignment inventory.
- This success lead to other opportunities at the end user: 5% GF PC gray for structural components as well as a Xarec application to replace phenolic in the meter base.
- Global Availability and Competitive Market Economics: Trouble-free supply for manufacturing on any continent, with attractive competitive pricing from PTS.
