Edgetek™ AM Non-Halogen Flame Retardant Formulations

Ideal for thin walled applications where mechanical and flame retardant performance is critical

Edgetek™ AM is a class of flame retardant, halogen free, semi-aromatic polyamides. It differs from conventional polyamides with higher mechanical strength and exceptional thermal resistance. These cost-effective, engineered-material solutions have been developed for a wide range of electrical and electronic high-end applications in electrical power management, automotive electronics and consumer industries. Edgetek AM bridges the cost/performance gap between traditional engineered thermoplastics and other high-performance specialty thermoplastics such as PPA, PPS, PSU, PES and PEI.       


  • Excellent strength and toughness
  • Dimensional stability with minimized warpage
  • Temperature resistance: melting point (310°C)
  • Flammability (UL94-V0/0.8mm)
  • Glow wire performance (IEC 606095-2-12/-13): GWFI 960
  • Excellent electrical properties: comparative tracking index (IEC 60112) 600V
  • Colorability even in light colors
  • Easy processing
  • Self-extinguishing performance
  • Creep resistance at high temperature
  • Mechanical and electrical performance
  • Ideal for thin-walled parts in multi-cavity molds
  • Non-halogenated formula enables product manufacturing with lower environmental impact
