NEXT-GEN LDPE & HDPE FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free LDPE & HDPE flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-gen GERPHOS flame retardants for Low-Density Polyethylene & High-Density Polyethylene resins
Polyethylene, in its versatile forms of LDPE and HDPE, is a cornerstone in the realm of plastics. These materials have revolutionized industries, offering solutions that are lightweight, durable, and cost-effective. LDPE, with its flexibility, finds its way into products like films, bags, and various packaging, while HDPE, recognized for its strength and rigidity, is instrumental in applications ranging from containers to pipes. Such widespread use of these resins underscores their importance in our daily lives, whether we’re aware of it or not. However, their ubiquitous nature also magnifies the need for these materials to be resilient against potential fire hazards. In scenarios where these plastics are exposed to elevated temperatures, whether during manufacturing or in end-use applications, it becomes crucial that they resist ignition and remain stable. This need for enhanced fire safety, without compromising the inherent benefits of LDPE and HDPE, calls for solutions that are both innovative and effective.
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants enhance the fire resistance of both LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) and HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) resins. By infusing GERPHOS into these polyethylene formulations, the resins exhibit a reduced susceptibility to ignition and flame spread. This is especially valuable in applications where LDPE and HDPE materials might face elevated temperatures or potential fire threats, ensuring these widely used plastics perform optimally while meeting stringent fire safety criteria.
