Flame retardants for plastics

Flame Retardants

Flame Retardants

Since the introduction of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) fire safety requirements for construction materials are continuously tightening worldwide, especially in cable industry.

As a result, the consumption of mineral flame retardants based on metal hydroxides is growing since these materials do not emit toxic gases during decomposition, which are one of the main causes of fire damage and deaths. In contrast, magnesium hydroxide effectively neutralizes toxic gases released during combustion, significantly reducing smoke generation. Due to its excellent refractory properties magnesium hydroxide promotes the formation of a strong protective char during combustion, preventing the formation of dangerous burning droplets.

It’s application as a single flame retardant optimizes the cost of the core compound, increasing productivity and reaching the highest grades of fireproof classification.

We are the leading producer and supplier of non-halogenated natural magnesium hydroxide EcoPiren® powder for use as a flame retardant and smoke suppressant in plastic compounds. As EcoPiren® is a natural material, its production is more environmentally friendly compared to synthetic grades produced by a high energy process.
