Until recently, the regulations of the JIS standard has been only for two types of insulation, Vinyl and Nylon.
In 2010, the JIS entry C2805, referring to material specifications, changed their categorization to the same temperature index used by UL.
Over the years, more concern is put on making environmentally friendly products, with regulations regarding their effects becoming stricter every year. In 2006 the RoHS directive was carried out, and in 2007 the REACH regulations were enforced. These regulations began restricting which materials could be used with the machines within Europe, and is becoming stricter as time goes on.
For electrical products, the Dibutyl Tin Compound and Phthalic Acid found within Vinyl have especially become a problem in being eco-friendly.
Vinyl is used widely as it is comparatively cheap, easy to manufacture, and stable, but, as mentioned above, is not as great for the environment
Nylon does not have very much effect on the environment, but, when compared to Vinyl, is more expensive, absorbs moisture, and is harder to manufacture.
The new Polycarbonate type, TMEX, does not include the Dibutyl Tin Compound or Phthalic Acid. It is more expensive than Vinyl, but has the same stability in manufacturing. We will be the first company in Japan to sell this kind.
Polycarbonate type terminals have shown to be effective and are becoming the norm in European countries.
