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
Steve Hollins, ECHA (European Chemical Agency), suggested that industry should be proactive in substituting chemicals which are flagged as possibly problematic on any of the different ECHA ‘early warning’ lists, such as PACT (public activities coordination tool), CoRAP, or have been assessed in an RMOA (risk management option analysis).READ MORE
Sabyasachi Gaan, EMPA Switzerland, presented development of DOPO derivative phosphorus PIN FRs for use in synthetic and bio-based polymers, from research through to industrial production: DOPO phosphphonamides (EDA-DOPO = 6,6'-(Ethane-1,2-diylbis(azanediyl))bis(dibenzo[c,e][1,2]oxaphosphinine-6-oxide)), today REACH registered and entering commercialisation by Metadynea; DOPO-PEPA (PEPA = 1-oxo-4-hydroxymethyl-2,6,7-trioxa-l-phosphabicyclo[2.2.2] octane), REACH registration underway, for application in polyester and polyolefins, under development with JET-Aviation for non-halogenated fire safety of wood products for aviation applications; and triazine DOPO, under development with BRUAG.READ MORE
