Organophosphorus flame retardants can be used as additive or reactive flame retardants. These flame retardant systems can be used for both thermoplastics as well as thermosets. The benefits of organophosphorus flame retardants include good thermal stability, compatibility with several polymers, low volatility amongst several others. This flame retardant technology encompasses a wide range of end market applications in the polymer industry. Organo phosphorus flame retardants are particularly useful with polymers like epoxies, polyamides and polyesters.
