Flame Retardant for Plastics

Adding Safety to Your Plastics with generic Flame Retardants

Wide Product Range

Masterbatch additive suppliers offer a vast range of products with a wide variety of attributes. Your supplier will offer more products than you need. This is especially true when selecting the right additive for flame-retardant plastics. 

Safety is a critical attribute all across industries but is crucial in electrical and electronic applications, fibers-films, and construction. Flame retardant technology assures the reduction in the fire risks involved. An attribute that increases use for every manufacturer. 

This attribute and advantage lead to a variety of flame retardants for every polymer application. Anywhere a plastic is used: home, office, and building construction including industrial manufacturing and storage (warehousing) flame-retardant products need to produce the best overall results. 

Fire regulations are more stringent and demand safe alternatives to older halogen-containing products. Manufacturers offer standard products for flame retardant applications that provide safety over the entire cycle of products. Manufacturers with a global reach of flame-retardants additives will provide greatly qualified technical experts to support your application. They will determine the best amount and formulation for your targeted ordinances.

Recycling flame retardant plastics

One issue with flame-retardant plastics is recycling difficulty. Since recycling is a globally mandated policy, advanced economies especially in the EU, are expected to lead in local and global solutions. With the difficulty of recycling flame-retardant products, the opportunity to make an impact with new additive formulations is a golden opportunity.

Fire and environmental protection services, pay keen interest on numerous chances for the kind of importance of flame retards and the rational economy plastics contain. There is no denying, there is more plastic required every day. Steeper in Europe but greater everywhere else. As a matter of fact, Europe’s plastic waste meets only 20% of the recycling target set every year. EU regulations are targeted in improving recycling through The Waste Framework Directive (with the responsibilities for improving the process of waste collection and recycling), trash yard, packaging, ending vehicle, WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), legislations for batteries, and come forward. Recycled plastics can bring value with the use of automatic recycling, chemical processing back to raw materials, and energy production as a fuel. A number of fire-retardant polymer combinations have been shown to be compatible with mechanical recycling, but POPs restrictions, RoHS and REACH SVHC classifications limit the practical implementation for plastics comprises certain brominated flame-retardants (PBDEs, HBCD, with some hope for antimony trioxide, TBBPA, chlorinated paraffin, and chlorinated phosphate esters) and RoHS requirements for any removal of plastic containing brominated fire retardants. Chemical recycling may be possible for plastics containing these difficult to process fire retardants.
