Sustainable flame retardant solutions for polymers
Business Unit: Polymer Additives
The presentation demonstrates LANXESS commitment towards more sustainable flame retardant solutions focusing on polymeric and reactive flame retardants. The concept of reactive and polymeric flame retardants is explained. The implementation of this concept is shown in two different polymers:
The benefits of new reactive and oligomeric phosphorus based flame retardants in polyurethane foam are presented. Furthermore the performance of polymeric brominated flame retardants in polystyrene foams as well as in engineering plastics is demonstrated.
