unidentified liquid rsidual on the surface of connectors (PA66+30GF injection molded)

(OP)
I discovered the presence of an unidentified liquid rsidual on the surface of connectors (PA66+30GF injection molded) that have been store for a period of time. This precipitate has led to the failure of Hi-pot/insulation tests. These unidentified liquids do not dry at 60°C, but when heated to 180°C, they transform into a white powder. Could someone please let me know the possible composition of these unidentified liquids and the reasons for their precipitation and residue on the connector's surface?

RE: unidentified liquid rsidual on the surface of connectors (PA66+30GF injection molded)

Never seen anything like that in 25 years.

Your best bet is to get samples to the material supplier for a lab check.

Guesses include:

Contamination of material
Some additive (plasticiser/heat stabilizer/anything else what's in it).

Any chance of a better picture?

Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It is their substitute for achievement.
