  • Publication number: 20220384982
    Abstract: An electrical connector having a first housing and a second housing. The first housing have a first mating face and a first cable receiving face with at least one first terminal receiving cavity which extends from the first cable receiving face to the first mating face. The second housing has a second mating face and a second cable receiving face with at least one second terminal receiving cavity which extends from the second cable receiving face to the second mating face. The second housing is spaced from the first housing. A flexible joining member extends from the first housing to the second housing. The flexible joining member is configured to allow the first housing to move independently of the second housing as the electrical connector is mounted to an electrical component. The first housing can be mated independently to the electrical component from the second housing.

  • Publication number: 20220340816
    Abstract: A two-part flame-retardant, a flame-retardant oriented strand (OSB) and method for forming a flame-retardant OSB is provided. The two-part flame-retardant composition includes an aqueous solution containing a water-soluble flame-retardant and a flame-retardant powder that is incorporated into an oriented strand board without substantially affecting the mechanical properties of the oriented strand board. The method includes applying the aqueous solution containing a water-soluble flame-retardant to an oriented strand board furnish and applying a flame-retardant powder to the wetted furnish, without requiring an additional drying step.
