Basic Requirements For Flame Retardants

It is increasingly recognized that using flame retardant materials is one of the strategic measures to prevent and reduce fires. It is a unique chemical additive used to improve the combustion performance of explosive and combustible materials. It is widely used in the resistance of various decoration materials—burning processing. The material processed by flame retardant can effectively prevent, delay, or stop the flame spread when attacked by an external fire source to achieve the flame retardant effect.

The flame retardant efficiency is high, and the amount required to obtain the unit flame retardant efficiency is minor. That is, the efficiency/price ratio is high. It is low-toxic or non-toxic, and the amount of toxic and corrosive gas and smoke generated during combustion is as tiny as possible, which is environmentally friendly. It has good compatibility with the flame-retardant substrate and is not easy to migrate and ooze out. The flame-retardant materials can be recycled and recycled.

The flame retardant has sufficiently high thermal stability. It does not decompose at the processing temperature of the flame-retardant substrate, but the decomposition temperature should not be too high, preferably between 250 and 400 ℃. It will not excessively deteriorate the processing performance of the flame-retardant substrate and the finished product's physical-mechanical and electrical properties. A flame retardant with excellent performance and a suitable flame retardant formulation can achieve a harmonious unity between flame retardancy and the practicality of the material.
