NEXT-GEN PVC FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free PVC flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-gen GERPHOS flame retardants for PVC resins
In today’s rapidly advancing world, the materials we use in everyday applications are expected to offer not just efficiency but also unmatched safety. Polyvinyl Chloride, more commonly identified as PVC, has long been the backbone of numerous industries, celebrated for its versatility, durability, and cost-effectiveness. From the sturdy pipes that channel water to our homes, to the cables that transmit power and data, PVC’s presence is ubiquitous. However, as with many materials, there lies a challenge in ensuring its resistance to the elemental threat of fire. The risks associated with flammable materials in infrastructural and everyday settings make it paramount to prioritize fire resistance, especially for such a widely used material. Balancing PVC’s invaluable properties while enhancing its safety is a task that demands innovation and foresight.
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants significantly amplify the fire resistance of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) materials. By incorporating GERPHOS into PVC formulations, the material’s tendency to ignite and spread flames is notably reduced. This enhancement is vital for various applications where PVC is employed, from pipes to cables, ensuring these products retain their robustness and functionality while adhering to rigorous fire safety protocols.
