Flame retardant technology helps reduce the risk of fire and increase the areas of use for your plastic products by adding flame retardant additives to combustible materials to prevent fires or slow their spread. These substances play a fundamental role and provide safety over the whole lifetime of the final product.
These thermally stable additives can be incorporated during the polymerization process or later during the molding or extrusion process, or at the end as a surface finish or coating because they have a very low probability of decomposing into combustible gases under heat stress.
MicroMB®Flame retardants are mainly used to slow down polymer combustion and degradation, reduce smoke emission, provide environmentally more compatible protection, as well as avoid dripping in 4 major areas:
With the increase of electrical and electronic equipment usage in our homes, along with combustible materials, the risk of fires are increasing too. Plastic components connected to electrical and electronic equipment, such as connecters, computers, televisions, and others tend to burn easily.
In order to comply with fire safety standards and regulations, all electrical and electronic applications must be protected with flame retardants for effective overheating protestation, as well as fire prevention or spread delay.
Building and Construction
Flame retardants can provide an expanded fire safety protection when used in a variety of materials for the building and construction of homes, offices, public buildings, schools, and hospitals.
Furniture and Houseware
Adding flame retardants as padding of material fillings and fibers in many types of furniture creates an extra layer of fire protection and increases critical escape time in case of a fire.
Flame retardants play a fundamental role in protecting travelers from the fire whether they are by commuting by cars, airplanes, bus or trains by creating a layer of protection to travelers once added to plastics.
Our highly skilled technical experts will provide you with the accurate dosage of flame retardants and combination for your specific requirements.
