Clariant’s Exolit® non-halogenated flame retardants provide environmental friendly and sustainable solutions for products used in a variety of industries. Flame Retardant Polyamide 6/66 Using Exolit® (PA6/66 FR) 3D printer filament is created by compounding polyamide 6/66 (a blend of polyamide 6 and polyamide 66) with the phosphorus based flame retardant Exolit®. The 3D printer filament prints exceptionally and can be used to produce a variety of parts that require flame retardancy and good mechanical properties.
