PIN FRs reach 450 km/h within 5 seconds

Clariant phosphorus-based PIN flame retardants are used in high fire security flexible polyurethane foams in the Florida Institute of Technology / Larsen Motorsports dragster, testing new limits for automotive performance flame retardancy.

Powered with a General Electric J-85 jet engine, the dragster can reach 450 km/h in around five seconds with a thrust of 2 300 kg. The dragster is built using aerospace technology, including aerospace fire safety requirements, with the objectives for Florida Tech of bridging the gap between aerospace and automotive technology developments, and of offering students hands-on experience of application, representing a clear plus for top-level employability in the automobile industry.
