PIN FR for natural fibre reinforced plastics

pinfa member, Budenheim, has launched a PIN flame retardant specifically developed for natural fibre reinforced plastics, such as WPC (wood plastic compounds). The ammonium polyphosphate based product is coated to improve polymer compatibility, processing and durability, resulting in high stability and water resistance in outdoor applications, such as deckings, building facades or fencing. The innovative PIN FR has a very good eco-toxicological profile and is compatible with a range of polymers (PP, PE and PVC). Depending on the fibre and polymer, UL94-V0 can be achieved (4 mm) at an FR loading of 20%. Because it is coated and is used in plastics, the product is not concerned by the REACH restriction on ammonium salts in cellulose insulation materials. and Credit photo: imaginima/iStock
