Products in the Exolit® OP and Exolit AP lines of halogen-free flame retardants will be featured by Clariant. Exolit provides environmentally-compatible fire protection for a wide range of applications. In 2014, Exolit OP 560 was designated by the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency as a more environmentally friendly flame retardant for polyurethane foam. This product enables formulators to produce flexible polyurethane foams that meet internationally-accepted flammability standards.

In addition to the Exolit range, Clariant will showcase Hostavin® light stabilizers, Hostanox® antioxidants, Licocene® polymers, Licowax® polyolefine waxes, and Ceridust® micronized waxes.

"We continue to innovate new applications for our products to meet our customers' requirements," said Tim Reilly, technical and business development manager for Clariant's Additives Business Unit. "Our relationship with Florida Institute of Technology is helping us to expand our footprint in automotive and other industries where highly flame retardant polyurethane foams are needed."
