Providing sustainable fire safety -
serving the industries around the world
Effective and enhanced solutions for your flame retardant applications
We provide our fire retardants to many industries and constantly strive to optimize them for each use. We are proud of our pioneering role in developing cutting-edge non-halogenated flame retardants for thermoplastics, as well as of our solid position in providing the key ingredients of intumescent and fire-resistant coatings.
Our solutions for thermosets combine high performance with low impact on materials, and our phosphorus-based products also give better fire protection to many applications. One day, our flame retardants may even enhance the safety of the first trip to Mars.

Can our products contribute to improving plastic circularity? Rudolf Pfaendner has the answer
»In our cooperation project with Clariant, it was shown for the first time that halogen-free flame-retarded polyamides are recyclable. Even after five extrusion cycles and oven aging, flame retardancy is still the same as in virgin materials.«
