Flame Retardants are essential for the safety of many products around us

PIN FRs ensure that electronics stay safe

Most fire deaths are from smoke toxicity, which is reduced by PIN FRs

Fires today grow nearly ten times faster than 40 years ago

PIN FRs can ensure fire safety of natural and recycled insulation products

Certain PIN flame retardants were found preferable by 3rd party research projects and institutions, such as ENFIRO, US EPA, Green Screen

New applications for PIN flame retardants

Sabyasachi Gaan, EMPA Switzerland, presented testing of PIN FRs in reactive extrusion of polyamide. An oligomeric phosphorus PIN flame retardant was embedded in polyamide, by reaction of a phosphorylated vinyl monomer (DVPPO) with the cyclic amine (piperazine) in extrusion of polyamide polymer to fibres, so embedding the resulting phosphorus-nitrogen macromolecules in the polyamide matrix.
