As the use of plastics has grown in recent years in such areas as construction, automobiles and aircrafts, so too has the concern over the flammability of these materials. To respond to that concern, the industry has discovered and introduced into the plastics or polymers, various fire retardant materials either singularly or as a flame retardant systems made of several materials. While the currently used flame retarding materials have brought about a significant decrease in the flammability of many of the more widely used polymers, there is still substantial room for improvement. It is this specific problem which we address.
Polymers can be modified by a number of flame retardants which hinder ignition or flame spread. The type of
flame retardant depends on the polymer and UL rating required. All of our flame retardant materials either
meet or exceed the UL 94 V-O and V-2 requirements. The flame retarded plastic will either self extinguish or
burn at a controlled rate.
