FR4 is a general name for laminates that are made of electronic-grade fiberglass cloth as the reinforcing material and the resin system is epoxy resin. In addition to its excellent electrical properties, mechanical properties and thermal stability, FR4 is also highly flame retardant and is widely used in various safety fields. This article will introduce in detail the flame retardant properties of FR4 materials and their applications in the safety field.
1. Flame retardant properties of FR4 materials
The flame retardant property of FR4 material is one of its important properties. Its flame retardant rating is UL94 V-0 and has the following characteristics:
Flame retardant: FR4 material will extinguish the flame after the fire source is removed and will not continue to burn. It has excellent flame retardant properties.
Low smoke: FR4 materials produce very little smoke, dust and toxic gases during the combustion process, which meets the requirements of safety and environmental protection.
Low heat release: FR4 materials release less heat during the combustion process, reducing the threat of fire to surrounding equipment and the human body.
Chemical stability: FR4 material has stable chemical properties and will not produce harmful substances during long-term use, ensuring the safety and reliability of the product.
2. Application of FR4 materials in the safety field
Because FR4 material has excellent flame retardant properties, it has been widely used in the safety field. The following are its main application areas:
Subway and rail transit: The electrical equipment of subways and rail transit has high requirements for flame retardant performance. FR4 materials are widely used in PCB production of subways and rail transit, ensuring the safe operation of electrical equipment.
Aerospace: Electronic products in the aerospace field need to have a high degree of safety and reliability. The flame retardant properties and stable chemical properties of FR4 materials meet these requirements and are widely used in PCB production in the aerospace field.
Industrial control: Equipment in the field of industrial control needs to operate stably for a long time. The mechanical strength and stable chemical properties of FR4 material make it an ideal choice for manufacturing industrial control equipment.
Smart buildings: The electrical systems and control systems in smart buildings require a high degree of safety and stability. FR4 materials are widely used in PCB production in smart buildings, ensuring the safe operation of electrical systems and control systems.
Power industry: High-voltage switches, transformers and other equipment in the power industry require a high degree of stability and safety. The mechanical strength and stable chemical properties of FR4 materials make it an ideal choice for power equipment manufacturing.
In short, FR4 materials are widely used in safety fields due to their excellent flame retardant properties. In fields such as subways, rail transit, aerospace, industrial control, smart buildings, and the power industry, FR4 materials play an important role in ensuring the safe operation of equipment and protecting the lives and property of personnel.
