Compounding World innovations in PIN FRs

The annual feature article in Compounding World on flame retardants illustrates the industry tendency for new developments, featuring only PIN FR solutions, all non-halogenated. The move away from antimony, because of regulatory concerns, is also emphasised. pinfa is cited as identifying new requirements for fire safety in electric vehicles, with demand for non-halogenated FRs resulting from declaration systems such as IMDS and GADS, and in construction and E&E, with demand for low smoke PIN solutions. All the company products and innovations featured are non-halogen, with: Applied Minerals, Adeka, BYK, Clariant, Europiren, Evonik, Fraunhofer LBF, FRX Polymers, ICL, Kraiburg, Paxymer, Polymer Resources, Quarzwerke, Techmer PM.
