Novel Polymeric, Nonhalogenated Flame Retardants For Use In Thermoplastic Elastomers

Polyphosphonates are a versatile addition to the continuously growing spectrum of FR additives. Optimizing these additives can offer balanced flame-retardant performance, mechanical properties, costs and other desired properties.

Demand for non-halogenated flame retardants in wire and cable applications has been increasing considerably in recent years due to regulation and environmental and health concerns of halogen-based flame retardants. Non-halogenated phosphorus, inorganic and nitrogen flame retardants are increasingly being used as the more environmentally friendly alternatives
