Flame retardant grades.

Users of mineral flame retardants can now achieve flame retardancy standards for their rubber and plastics at reduced filler loadings, according to the company. Grades of Martinal and Magnifin mineral flame retardants have been developed that are said to improve char formation and allow end users to achieve current flame retardancy standards at reduced filler loadings, or improve flame retardancy performance at conventional loadings. The grades of Martinal (aluminum hydroxide specialties) and Magnifin (magnesium hydroxide specialties) flame retardants, which contain a synergist based on nano technology, are said to make it much easier for users to obtain a VO (zero) classification than with traditional mineral grades.
