FRX Polymers’ Nofia® OL1001, OL3001, OL5000, OL9000 and HM1100 phosphonate-based PIN flame retardants have achieved accreditation by the Oeko-Tex Ecolabel.
Oeko-Tex is an international association of 16 independent research and testing institutes active in more than 60 countries, focused on product safety and sustainable production in the textile industry. The OekoTex label means that these Nofia flame retardants have been independently assessed as harmless to health in a range of uses and applications. Jan-Pleun Lens, Vice-President Research and Applications at FRX Polymers indicates that the Oeko-Tex accreditation recognises Nofia’s high performance and sustainability advantages. The Nofia chemistry enables tailor-made phosphorus products to be produced with a wide range of compositions and molecular weights, including oligomers and polymers. Nofia PIN FRs are being used in commercial textiles for building and construction as well as transportation applications and also in some non-woven applications.
