Himont, Monsanto conclude marketing effort.

Himont, Wilmington, DE, and the Chemical Group of Monsanto, Charlotte, NC, have successfully concluded a five-year collaboration to develop and market Monsanto's "Phos-Chek" P-40 fire retardant and Himont's "Spinflam" MF82 halogen-free flame retardant additives. Effective immediately, Himont will directly serve Monsanto customers in product sourcing, sales and technical customer support through its Functional Chemicals Group.

The two companies have worked together to combine Monsanto's Phos-Chek P-40 ammonium polyphosphate (APP) with Himont's patented nitrogen-based, halogen-free, intumescent flame retardant line to produce an additive for use in electrical/electronic, construction and industrial applications for polyolefins and polyurethanes.
