  • Benefits

    • White powder, not hygroscopic, insoluble in water and common organic solvents like acetone, dichloromethane, MEK, toluene
    • Can easily be dispersed in solvents like acetone or MEK
    • Halogen-free flame retardant with a high phosphorus content, suitable for use in both thermoplastic and thermoset applications where the most stringent fire retardancy standards must be met
    • for epoxy based laminates for printed circuit boards like halogen-free FR-4 and CEM-3 laminates; can be readily dispersed in epoxy resin systems when a high shear mixer is used
    • Does not increase water pick-up after Pressure Cooker test
    • Low smoke toxicity
    • Non-halogenated flame retardant with favorable environmental and health profile
  • Safety and MSDS

    Further 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.

  • Applications

    Exolit OP 930 is a halogen-free flame retardant with a high phosphorus content which is suitable for use in both thermoplastic and thermoset applications where the most stringent fire retardancy standards must be met.

    One application is epoxy based laminates for printed circuit boards. Halogen-free FR-4 and CEM-3 laminates can be produced by using Exolit OP 930. It can be readily dispersed in epoxy resin systems when a high shear mixer is used. Exolit OP 930 does not increase the water pick-up after Pressure Cooker test.

    Classification: UL 94: class V-1, 1.6 mm
    concentration: approx. 10 parts Exolit / 100 parts resin

    Classification: UL 94: class V-0, 1.6 mm
    concentration: approx. 30 parts Exolit / 100 parts resin
    or in combination with other flame retardants like ATH
