EV Flame retardant coatings are often required to protect a wide range of products of both flammable and nonflammable against Flame.
It is an oldest, most efficient, and easiest method to apply any surface without modifying the intrinsic properties of materials.
Moreover, the initial phase of Flame always occurs on the surface by ignition, and hence, it is important to concentrate on the surface protection of a material.
Being an organic nature of conventional surface coating will burn easily and generate smoke and toxic fumes, which may not be suitable for application where Flame protection or Flame prevention is required.
Reaction-to-Flame and/or resistance-to-Flame are to be considered for assessing both flammable and non-flammable material by using Flame retardant and Flame resistant or Flame protective coatings.
The degree of Flame retardation mainly depends on the coating thickness, substrates, and efficiency of formulation .
The ideal Flame retardant coatings should have minimum Flame spread, negligible or low release of smoke and/or toxic gases, be easy to apply, show good wear resistance, adhere to the underlying substrate and offer low cost.
Typically, they are based on chlorinated alkyds or brominated epoxy resin and filled aluminum hydroxide or a combination of chlorinated paraffin and antimony oxide system.
However, the wide range of Flame retardants in the form of reactive or additive and different classes (halogen, phosphorus, nitrogen, minerals, oxides, intumescent, and nanofillers) are available commercially that are incorporated into coating formulations to inhibit or retard the burning of materials
The Global EV Flame-retardant coating market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Axalta Develops Halogen-free EV Flame Retardant Thermoplastic Anti-corrosion Solution
Axalta has announced the launch of Plascoat PPA571 FR (Flame-Retardant) , a new anti-corrosion coating solution designed to protect Electric Vehicles (EV).
Axalta has announced the launch of Plascoat PPA571 FR (Flame-Retardant) , a new anti-corrosion coating solution designed to protect Electric vehicles and save lives in the event of fires.
Drawing on decades of experience in thermoplastic technology, Axalta has developed this new coating solution in response to the dual threats of fires and toxic fumes which pose a major threat to human life and well being.
Such coatings, which can be deployed in a range of environments, are fire-resistant and act as a barrier to additional damage caused by the spread of flames.
Unlike many other flame retardant solutions available on the market, Plascoat PPA571 FR does not contain a halogen constituent, such as chlorine or bromine, which helps to eliminate the presence of toxic fumes and their associated negative environmental impact.
