Polyonics Introduces XF-604, a Flame Retardant Polyester Label Material

Mar 17, 2011

Polyonics introduces the XF-604, a 2 mil white polyester, halogen free label material designed and recognized by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the VTM-1 level of flame retardants per the UL94 standard. The addition of the XF-604 to the FLAMEGARDTM product family provides customers with a lower cost alternative to the XF-603 (polyimide) while still exhibiting flame retardant properties.

"The need for materials that will not propagate a flame in electronic devices and machinery is in demand" notes Tom Rogers Marketing Director for Polyonics. "As demonstrated in our Flame Test video, traditional polyester labels burn rapidly and will not meet these emerging flame retardant requirements". Like the XF-603, the XF-604 uses Polyonics’ Halogen Free, Flame Retardant Technology that provides significant "self-extinguishing" performance.

The XF-604 is coated with a semi-gloss white topcoat specifically designed for flexo-graphic and thermal transfer printing. When matched with the proper inks or halogen free thermal ribbons, images on the XF-604 will withstand harsh chemicals and solvents typically used in electronic manufacturing processes. Application suggestions for the XF-604 include: product identification of electronic devices, gaming consoles, power supplies, identification of batteries and network cards.

The XF-604 complies with the requirements of RoHS, REACH, and is certified to be halogen free to the IEC 61249-2-21 levels. To receive technical information or samples of this new innovative product, please contact a technical expert at +1 (603)352-1415 or email at info@polyonics.com


Polyonics Inc., is a manufacturer of specialty label materials used by converters throughout the world for harsh environment applications. Polyonics is based in Westmoreland, New Hampshire and has sales offices in Singapore, Shanghai and Shenzhen China.
