Exolit® OP 935
Finer grained version of phosphinate flame retardant Exolit OP 930 for adhesive applications
For more details see our Innovation Spotlight video.
- Based on an organic metal phosphinate
- Not hygroscopic, insoluble in water and common organic solvents like acetone, dichloromethane, MEK, toluene
- Good hydrolysis resistance
- Can easily be dispersed in solvents like acetone or MEK
- Halogen-free flame retardant with a high phosphorus content which is suitable for use in both thermoplastic and thermoset applications to meet the most stringent fire retardancy standards
- Suited for thermoplastic elastomers for cable applications
- Particularly suitable for very thin adhesive applications like flexible printed circuit boards due to its specifically designed particle size distribution; can be readily dispersed in epoxy resin systems when a high shear mixer is used
- Low smoke toxicity
- Non-halogenated flame retardant with favorable environmental and health profile
SafetyFurther safety data and handling information are available from our current Material Safety Data Sheet. For disposal in accordance with the regulations the product should be treated as special waste and taken to a suitable incineration plant.
