FLAME RETARDANT COMPOUNDS

As the use of plastics has grown in recent years in such areas as construction, automobiles and aircrafts, so too has the concern over the flammability of these materials. To respond to that concern, the industry has discovered and introduced into the plastics or polymers, various fire retardant materials either singularly or as a flame retardant system made of several materials. While the currently used flame retarding materials have brought about a significant decrease in the flammability of many of the more widely used polymers, there is still substantial room for improvement. It is this specific problem which we address.
