Flame Retardant Compounds
FlamaSol FR™, a flame retardant compound, that offers superb extinquishing performance for plastic products. It, DOES NOT CONTAIN decabromodiphenyl oxide (decabrome), nor antimony trioxide, common ingredients in most flame retardant packages. Decabrome is considered potentially toxic and is thus being eliminated in flame retardant formulations, with manufacturing scheduled to cease in 2012.
The PCC Solutions Center developed FlamaSol FR™ in response to a rising need in the marketplace for safer flame resistant plastics. Our team of scientists at PCC tested a wide variety of materials under simulated temperature and combustion conditions to find the best formulations for our customers.
FlamaSol FR Applications
FlamaSol FR has a variety of applications and is ideal for use in any application where flammability or ignition is a concern. FlamaSol FR PP is appropriate for use in injection molding, extrusion and blow molding applications.
Products made with FlamaSol FR will self-extinguish, protecting surroundings and personnel from fire hazards. FlamaSol FR for PP surpasses in-house testing standards comparable to UL 94 and ANSI 4996 for plastic pallets and performs better than our previous flame retardant systems.
