Fire-retardant and efficient: The new engine mount by ContiTech reduces vibrations in domestic appliances and meets the U.S. fire protection standard UL 94 V0.
A new engine mount by ContiTech is increasing safety in the home. It is made of a halogen-free plastic and is fire-retardant up to 220° C. Among other things, it meets the requirements of the U.S. fire protection standard UL 94 V0, which is identical in content to the European standards DIN EN 60695-11-10 and -20 and the Canadian standard CSA C 22.2. Further advantages for the appliance user:
The domestic appliances are noticeably quieter when running due to the professional mounting. At the same time, wear and tear on components such as the drive train in the motor is reduced. This increases the service life of the domestic appliance. Maintenance periods and costs can be considerably reduced.
So far, the new ContiTech engine mount is used in high-end clothes dryers in the USA. “But it's also possible to use it in other areas with high fire protection requirements,” explains Thomas Bauer, Key Account Manager at ContiTech Vibration Control. So for example, product solutions for Whirlpools and domestic appliances that fall under fire protection standard UL 94 V0 are possible.
