The French compounder ADDIPLAST has launched a new range of halogen-free, PIN flame retardant (fire safety using phosphorus, nitrogen and inorganic additives) compounds based on polyamide PA6 and PA66 (ADDIFLAM range), including compounds reinforced with biosourced natural fibres (ADDIBIO renew). The compounds offer high heat resistance and electrical insulation, availability in natural, black or pantone colours and, according to specification, conformity to UL94 V2 and V0 (yellow card), VDE, FMVSS 302, D45-1333 class A and B regulations.
They are adapted for applications in automotive, electronics & electrical and in construction. The ADDIPLAST Group has also launched a new company and production site to make masterbatch specialities on co-kneader Buss technology: ADDIKEM now offers halogen-free flame retardant masterbatches for different polymers including polyamide, polypropylene and polyethylene. For example, PE HFFR masterbatch Addibatch MBD 40220 achieves M1 or B1 fire resistance from 80 to 250 micron polyethylene films (at 14% loading).
