UL certification of PA expands GRAFE’s international product standards in accordance with UL94 HB


The GRAFE Group has expanded its range of products meeting international quality standards with yet another UL certification. The plastics specialist from Blankenhain has announced that the UL Mark will now be applied to polyamide, joining the already certified materials PP, TPU and PC. The UL Mark certifies high and long-lasting quality of the company‘s products and clears the way for new sales channels and project activities in North America and Canada.


Back in 2010, GRAFE certified its PP Modale product group – Masterbatch for PP injection molding applications. In 2014 TPU-Tekolen was granted approval in accordance with UL94 HB „all colors“ and shortly thereafter PC-Tekolen followed. With the most recent UL certification of polyamides, GRAFE has again raised its product safety and quality standards in compliance with UL94 HB.

The UL standard tests the flammability and fire safety of plastics. The procedure determines the flammability class according to HB and is used mainly for housing components of electronic devices and applications. The certificate serves as proof that GRAFE-masterbatches for polyamides have been tested by the scientific testing organization and meet the applicable standards and requirements regarding possible risk of fire and mechanical hazards. The products will be tested and re-certified annually in the UL testing facilities in order to ensure ongoing compliance with the original requirements.

With the most recent UL-certification, the GRAFE Group has not only secured the smooth introduction of its products onto the international market, but has also enhanced their value and clearly distinguished itself from the competition through investment in product safety. Masterbatches are available in any color customers may request without restrictions to technical properties. „In addition to ISO and TS16949-certified quality in production and service, our focus is just as much on product safety. This will benefit all of our customers, even those who do not currently require UL certification”, according to Managing Director Matthias Grafe. „This quality mark demonstrates our ongoing commitment to safety and customer satisfaction.“
