Flame Retardant Polyterephthalate Masterbatch

Flame Retardant Polyterephthalate Masterbatch

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) are widely used thermoplastic polymers known for their excellent mechanical properties, dimensional stability, and chemical resistance. However, their flammability can pose a significant safety risk.

Flame retardancy is critical when considering the fire safety of PET and PBT products. Flame retardant additives can be incorporated into PET and PBT to enhance their flame resistance, flame spread, and exothermic properties.

Alfa Chemistry offers an extensive range of flame retardant polyterephthalate masterbatch products. Flame retardant PET masterbatch and flame retardant PBT masterbatch are concentrated mixtures of flame retardant additives dispersed in a PET or PBT carrier resin. They are specially formulated to provide flame retardancy to PET and PBT-based products while retaining their mechanical and physical properties.

Additives in Flame Retardant Polyterephthalate Masterbatch

Below are several flame retardant additives commonly used in flame retardant polyterephthalate masterbatch formulations. These additives work through mechanisms such as carbon formation, heat absorption, and gas phase reactions.

  • Brominated flame retardants, such as tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
  • Phosphorus flame retardants, including phosphates, phosphonates, and, polyphosphates.
  • Antimony trioxide (ATO) synergistic flame retardants.

Applications for Flame Retardant Polyterephthalate Masterbatch

  • Electrical and Electronics Industry: Flame retardant polyterephthalate masterbatches are used in the production of electrical connectors, switches, and, insulating components.
  • Automotive Industry: Flame retardant polyterephthalate masterbatches are used in automotive applications including interior trim, connectors, and under hood components.
