Dynamic Modifiers launches non-halogenated, non-antimony polypropylene concentrate for polyolefin textiles, films and molded parts. The concentrate conserves lightweight advantages of polyolefin fibres and non-polar properties, which tend to limit bacteria or virus attachment or growth, and is compatible with transparency, colours and printable with corona or plasma surface treatment. UL94-V2 fire performance is achieved (0.8 mm), using 8% to 14% let down of polypropylene homopolymer based concentrate. Low smoke and self-extinguishing behaviour is achieved in FAR 25.853a 12 second and 60 second vertical burn test used for aerospace applications. The concentrate is non-toxic, uses PIN flame retardants not risking migration, and can bring LEED points for green construction.
