Non-halogenated flame retardants for sustainable solutions
The performance profile required of modern flame retardants has changed significantly in recent years. Alongside their effectiveness in the event of a fire, environmental considerations play an increasing role in all phases of the product life cycle – from production and processing through to actual use and end-of-life recycling. It is an issue that has been raised by the end users of the products and followed up by the processors. As a global market leader in non-halogenated flame retardants, Clariant’s Exolit® portfolio provides great technical, economical and ecological benefit. The main target applications for Clariant’s Exolit flame retardants are electric and electronic equipment, e.g. switches, connectors, but also cable materials as alternatives to polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
