Teijin have launched a new masterbatch combining their FCX-210 phosphorus-based PIN flame retardant with polymer for use on both fibres and in resins.
FCX-210 is effective in a range of resins including styrenes (e.g. ABS, polystyrene / HIPS) and polyamides, used in electronics and automobiles. It enables UL94 V-0 at 0.8 mm with 15% loading in PBT or at 3mm with 25% loading in HIPS/PPE. The new masterbatch enables application of FCX-210 to textiles, such as curtains carpets and wallpapers. The product is insoluble, enabling easier draining in application processes, and offers exceptional transparency and colorability.
