Development of new fire retardant additives totally free of halogen, under solution component F

Nerefite project focuses on environmental considerations for new flame retardant systems. Flame retarding, especially with non-halogen systems, presents a strong challenge for textile industry.

The incorporation of powder in order to perform fire retardant properties, could involve a lost of mechanical properties. So an alternative is to incorporate fire retardant additives under liquid form.

So Devan has elaborated up graded additives under liquid. These additives, incorporated during extrusion step allow to perform fire retardant properties and to increase mechanical properties. The setting up of these additives is directly interesting for plastics and textile industry.
