Camillo Cardelli, SILMA Masterbatches, takes home from the conference that tomorrows flame retardants must be “green”, combing fire safety performance, environment and health safety and full polymer recycling: the Circular Economy is crucial. To achieve these objectives, and to reduce possible toxicity of smoke and soot, industry must aim to remove halogens and heavy metals. Mineral and phosphorus compound PIN flame retardants and fillers offer this potential.

The SILMAFLAME range of PIN flame retardant Masterbatches is already working in these directions, including products for polypropylene (UL94-V0 or Class B1 DIN4102) and for polyethylene films (replacing legacy FRs at the same dosage to offer high mechanical performance and light stability in thin films).
