A broad range of chemicals that are added to manufactured goods like plastics, fabrics, surface finishes, and coatings fall under the umbrella phrase “flame retardants additive”
When an ignition source is present, flame retardants additive become active and work in a variety of physical and chemical ways to stop or delay the spread of ignition.
They can be included into the polymer during the polymerization process as a copolymer, or later on during the molding or extrusion process, or (especially for textiles) as a topical finish. While organohalogen and organophosphorus chemicals can be either reactive or additive, mineral flame retardants are normally additive.
To make sure that particular items will be safer to use in terms of fire, flame retardant chemicals are added to polymers. The goods’ flame retardant properties will stop a spark or flame from “catching on” and will prevent additional ignition. For products intended for young children or those with electrical components, this is seen as vital.
The Global Flame Retardant Additive Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
A polycarbonate addition that works well at low usage levels is 3M FR-2025 Flame Retardant Additive. Grades of polycarbonate that are optically clear and haze-free can be created with the flame retardant chemical FR-2025.
It’s an additive that isn’t brominated or chlorinated. It is also thermally and chemically stable up to 450 °C. To attain V-0 in UL 94 rating, it is frequently used in synergy with fibrillating PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene).
Without the aid of synergists, FR-2025 has been proven to be effective as a flame retardant. It is advised that the addition be first disseminated into a 10% or more masterbatch and then compounded into the final plastic blend for the most effective assimilation.
