Plastic Flame Retardant Formulation Design

Plastic Flame Retardant Formulation Design

In order to reduce and reduce the economic losses and casualties caused by polymer combustion, plastic products usually require flame retardant modification treatment. Alfa Chemistry is proficient in flame retardant formulations and guarantees professional technical support and excellent customer service.


What Can We Do?

  • Adding flame retardants directly to resins is a simple and easy way to improve the burning properties of plastics. Alfa Chemistry has the ability to design flame retardant formulations for different polymer materials.
  • Relying on advanced equipment and experienced materials chemists, Alfa Chemistry develops and provides plastic flame retardant formulation design services according to end applications and customer requirements.
  • Our general recipe design process consists of four steps:
    • Step 1: Confirm the kind of materials, such as PP, PA6, PA66, PC, ABS, etc.
    • Step 2: Confirm the flame retardant grade requirements (such as 5VA, 5VB, V0, V1, V2, HB, whether it can be dripped, oxygen index requirements).
    • Step 3: Whether there is a halogen-free requirement. (Halogen content<500 ppm, or halogen content = 0?)
    • Step 4: In addition to flame retardant performance, confirm other performance requirements (such as mechanical properties, electrical special properties, etc.).

    Our general recipe design process consists of four steps

  • During the service project, our flame retardant team will give you timely feedback on the project progress to ensure that you fully understand the details of the formula design.
