Ampacet, a global masterbatch leader, has launched ELTech™ Orange 2003 PBT, specifically designed for high-voltage orange PBT electrical & electronic equipment. 

The rapid evolution and growth of the e-mobility industry sector, including hybrid, plug-in-hybrid and fully electric vehicles (EVs), have underscored possible electrical shock risks. Orange RAL 2003 has been selected as one market colour reference to highlight potential hazards and electrical shock risks when handling under-the-hood cables and connectors.

Electrical connectors used in EVs often face severe service conditions, including extremes in voltage and temperatures, so it is critical to preserve colour stability to ensure identification of high-voltage hazards.

Designed to colour PBT resins and natural compounds,  Ampacet ELTech Orange 2003 PBT masterbatch meets RAL 2003 Orange colour specifications in order to provide easy identification of high voltage hazards. It also performs well under thermal stress and maintains colour consistency in heat ageing.

ELTech Orange 2003 PBT masterbatch (7400269-E) is suited for applications such as medium and high-voltage PBT connectors for EVs, PBT cable jacketing and other high-quality PBT electrical & electronic equipment.
