Frédéric Roquefeuil, CellMark, presented this group’s development into fire safety. The group was founded in 1984 in Sweden with roots in the pulp and paper industry, acquiring Alcan International Network in 2012. CellMark has today 700 staff worldwide and a strong emphasis on developing a safer and more sustainable chemistry. CellMark’s PIN flame retardant portfolio is based around precipitated aluminum hydroxides (mono & tri hydroxides) which are produced by KC Korea. CellMark is also developing and producing specialty mineral additives which work as synergists to reduce heat release and smoke emission up to 40% while allowing a significant decrease of FR loadings in cable compounds Current developments aim to further reduce smoke emission with newly designed ATH. CellMark has also developed a ceramifying filler which improves the fire resistance of strategic security parts, whilst remaining compatible with existing processing technologies.
