Halogen Free Environment friendly Fire Retardants

July 10, 2017

Halogen free flame retardants are substances or compounds when added to materials like plastics, coatings and textiles to prevent or delay the spread of fire.

The global demand for fire retardants is above 2 million tons per year. A major demand for fire retardants come from plastic industries. The use of plastic being widespread it is very essential to decrease risk of fire related accidents, since all carbon based materials are combustible. The performance of halogenated compounds is excellent.

Halogenated flame retardants are less toxic. At a certain temperature the compounds fall apart absorbing heat and water vapour. The oxides formed results in a protective layer that provides a smoke suppressing effect.
