With brominated and phosphorus-based solutions, LANXESS offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of organic flame retardants in the world. Our newly developed polymeric and reactive flame retardants can reduce the release of additives from the polymers, thus contributing to environmental and health protection without compromising fire safety.
Due to their high efficiency brominated flame retardants are frequently used in the construction and electronics industries.
In addition to highly efficient fire protection, phosphorus-based flame retardants offer further advantages such as good processability and high elasticity in PU and PVC systems.
These additives are used in the manufacture of flame-retardant articles, including insulation, cables, printed circuit boards, foils, tarpaulins, floor coverings, seat covers, and fire protection applications.

Plasticizers ensure elasticity and flexibility of polymer materials. But this is not their only benefit. Plasticizers also optimize, for example, the processing properties of polymer materials, which leads to improved product quality or even new properties. The choice of plasticizers depends on the demand placed on the finished product. These can include greater softness, elasticity, adhesion, flame retardant properties or resistance to chemicals, weathering and migration.

Polymers that are produced by polycondensation generally display a weakness when attacked by water or moisture. Our Stabaxol® hydrolysis stabilizers are suited to improve the hydrolysis resistance of polycondensates such as PET, PBT, PU, TPU and PA to expand their range of applications.
Water treatment chemicals
Whenever scale inhibition in water circuits or wastewater treatment are required, LANXESS products are used to stabilize the water hardness, control corrosion and disperse solids effectively. Specialties of LANXESS are used in industrial processes such as traditional water treatment circuits, once-through cooling processes as well as in surface cleaners, personal care products and detergents for private use.
Products: Bayhibit®, Baypure®, Epiphos®, Mersolat®
Bromine and phosphorus performance products
Bromine, bromine derivatives and phosphorus specialties serve as building blocks for developing and engineering highly complex organic molecules.
Bromine, brominated intermediates and phosphorus chemicals are utilized in many applications including flame retardants, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, high performance rubber, polymers and biocides.
Products: Baysolvex®, Tri- and Dibutyl phosphates, phosphorus chlorides, phosphites, phosphorus oxides and polyphosphoric acids
