FR HIPS Grades Meet International Specs.

A new line of flame-retardant HIPS compounds is said to meet U.S. and European flame and environmental ratings while providing excellent colorability and physical properties. Developed by RTP Co., Winona, Minn., the products can be customized to meet UL 94V-0 or V-2 or IEC 695-2-1 Glow Wire test commonly required for the European market. RTP says the halogen and non-halogen formulations comply with the German Hazardous Substance Ordinance and meet the requirements of the latest draft of the EU WEEE/ROS Directive on recycling, which calls for the elimination of polybrominated biphenyl and diphenyl-ether flame retardants.
