Tolsa Group, Madrid, a leading supplier of additives for wires, cables and electronics, has widened the polymer applications for its ADINS® fire safety synergists, to cover EVA/PE, PP, PA and expanded polystyrene foams. The products are based on natural silicates doped with phosphorus compounds (ADINS Fireproof) and sepiolite clays (ADINS Clay), modified with a range of specific compounds including ammonium salts and silanes, to offer different polarities and tailored performance benefits and polymer processing compatibility.
They constitute an inorganic technology, which can help PIN flame retardant packages ensure fire performance and low smoke, low fire gas toxicity, whilst offering reduced environmental impact. They can act as synergists with mineral PIN flame retardants such as ATH (aluminium trihydrate) and MDH (magnesium hydroxide) and also support char formation and improve char mechanical properties, improving fire protection in non-halogenated flame retardant systems.
