Non-halogenated flame retardants launched

Thursday, 5 April 2012

Reactive phosphorus-based flame retardants for transport and construction applications   provide highly-effective fire protection at low dosage levels.

Clariant launches a novel, sustainable solution to achieving high fire safety levels for transport and construction applications, with its new non-halogenated flame retardants for epoxy resins. "Exolit EP 150” and "EP 200” are reactive phosphorus-based flame retardants that provide highly-effective fire protection at low dosage levels for epoxy thermosets and laminates. Currently available as laboratory product samples, they create potential for parts manufacturers in these sectors to improve their efficiency and transition towards non-halogenated flame retardants. The new grades have high phosphorus contents of 25 % and 29 % respectively, which enables only a low dosage of flame retardant to be used to reach the desired protection effect. They do not migrate out of the resin material, bind with the polymer and ensure minimal impact on material properties.
