VELOX, a European leader in raw material specialities for the polymer and coatings industries, has extended its range of low-density phosphorus-based PIN flame retardants. The range of P-based PIN products offers environmentally sustainable fire safety solutions for polyamides, EVA, PWC, latex and rubbers, epoxy, polypropylene and polyolefins.
The new phosphorus flame retardant for polyolefins, based on a mixture of phosphorus salts with different condensation and valence number, achieves high fire performance (UL94-V0 at 3,2 – 1,6 mm in different polyolefins), low smoke emission as measured by NBS smoke chamber. The product also offers high resistance to humidity, good compatibility with glass fibres, ageing resistance, low tinting, thermal stability, easy dosing and processing. It is delivered as a white, colourable powder and its high phosphorus content ensures effectiveness at low loadings
