Interest in halogen-free flame retardants is growing

Monday, 20 February 2012

A conference presentation will review various halogen-free solutions based on intumescent formulations, nanoparticles and other non-intumescent formulations developed over the last decade.

A conference presentation will review various halogen-free solutions based on intumescent formulations, nanoparticles and other non-intumescent formulations developed over the last decade.

There is growing interest in the flame retardant community to develop halogen-free flame retardants which could be used in coating applications. Chlorophosphates such as TCEP (Tris(2-chloroethyl)phosphate), TCPP (Tris(1-chloro-2-propyl)phosphate) and TDCPP (Tri(2,3-dichloropropyl) phosphate) which are commonly used in flame retardant formulations have been either proven harmful to the human body or are under EU risk assessment. Moreover several brominated flame retardants which are also used in FR coatings have already been banned or will be phased out in recent future.

The presentation, to be given by Dr. Sabyasachi Gaan of EMPA (Switzerland) will be part of the European Coatings Conference "Fire retardant coatings” on 13 and 14 March, 2012 in Berlin.
