Flame Retardants


Flame-retardants are an important class of additives added to polymers to prevent or slow the further development of ignition. At the same time, they are under continuous regulation scrutiny due to the chemistries used in these grades.

To satisfy the industry’s need for a safer solution, technologies like halogen-free flame retardants are coming up and experts are working on other newer and safer solutions as well.
