Project ID: G1RD-CT-2001-00579
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Belgium

Formulation for polypropylene polymer totally free of halogen based on intumescent concept with solid additives

Objective of the project is to develop specific non-halogeneous fire retardant formulations for PP in fibres applications. The first step of RDT activities was to develop fire-retardant formulations for PP. Different additives were studied and processing was optimized. Formulations based on polypropylene enable to promote fire retardant properties, maintaining polymer mechanical properties. The second step of RDT activities was to optimize these formulations in order to obtain good spinning behaviours at lab and pilot scale. This could be of interest for different final Non-Woven applications, as for instance automotive, building and furnishing industries.
