Facing concerns and regulations about the toxicity of halogenated additives, manufacturers and compounders are turning to halogen-free flame retardants (HFFRs). Our silicone-based HFFR technologies provide a low rate of heat release and toxic gas evolution and excellent smoke suppression, while maintaining the resin's or compound's mechanical properties.
Our silicone FR additives target common scenarios:
Our HFFR technologies are ideal for highly filled compounds used for wire & cable insulation, window profiles and pipes. They enhances anti-dripping performance and reduces flaming time. They can improve tensile modulus and tensile strength at traction when used at loadings up to 2 wt%.
We draw on 20 years of FR experience to provide high flame-smoke-toxicity performance while maintaining or improving mechanical and aesthetic properties. Other benefits of our portfolio include:
