Standard Grades available in colours, too

The standard PREPERM® grades cover a wide range of dielectric constants. Often, you need to have more than one Dk in a product. To make it easier to separate different dielectric constants from one another, we offer a full range of coloured granules, one colour for each Dk.

Coloured or not, you can rely on the same, proven quality you have come to expect of us. Colouring does not have a significant effect on any of the material product properties. Coloured grades are available on request. Please contact our Sales for more information and add some colour to your life!

New A-series for improved adhesion to many types of materials


Do you need improved adhesion in e.g. metallization, coating or 2K injection molding? A-series is the solution for this. The same performance as the standard series but with improved adhesion. Please contact our Sales for more information. A-series grades are available on request.

PREPERM® fire retardant grades meet challenging demands

The flame retardant grades cover dielectric constants from 2.65 to 12 and have a V0 or V1 UL94 rating. They are well suited for example for airplane wi-fi, as well as various applications within the telecom and automotive industries. Flame retardancy is a must in many of these applications because fires generated from e.g. overheating of equipment can have catastrophic consequences.

PREPERM® FR grades have similar advantages as the standard series. They are easy to process, and they have good mechanical properties and thermal stability. Our grades are also ROHS compliant.

PREPERM® FR series is now available in granules. If you prefer it in some other shape, please feel free to contact us with your request!

PREPERM® High Temperature Grades

There are two different PREPERM® high-temperature series called PRERERM® PEEK and PREPERM® LCP. Both series have high ɛr combined with low dissipation factor, outstanding thermal stability, excellent mechanical properties, and chemical resistance and inherent flame retardancy. Where PEEK is often used in applications like aviation, structural parts and to replace ceramics, LCP’s best advantage high flowability in thin parts like mobile communication.
