The problem of flammability of polymeric materials can be solved in two directions: chemical modification (introduction of links or components containing functional groups that prevent combustion, such as halogen) and the use of functional fillers. Such antipyrene fillers can constitute up to 200% of the resin volume in the composition. When exposed to high temperatures, they decompose with release of water, which in turn reduces the temperature of flue gases, preventing their further ignition.
Chemical modification has a number of disadvantages:
high content of halogens and carcinogenic metal salts in the modifier;
decomposition with release of a number of hazardous chemical compounds with carcinogenic and neurotropic effects;
difficulties in handling and processing raw materials of hazard classes 2 and 3.
Using flame retardants based on aluminum hydroxide in fire-retardant polymer compositions makes it possible to achieve material properties corresponding to КМ0 group.
Functional Materials Group of Companies is a producer of aluminum hydroxide-based flame retardants. We have our own scientific, technical and industrial base that allows to develop, improve and produce micronized products in the shortest possible time to meet the market demands.
