What are Flame Retardants?
Flame retardants are substances/ chemicals that are used to prevent fires from starting or to slow the spread of fire. Flame retardants have the ability to hamper the igniting power of materials used in many consumer and industrial products. Alumina trihydrate (ATH) is the most widely used flame retardants as it is non-halogen flame retardant and smoke-suppressant. ATH is environmental friendly as it does not emit toxic smoke when burned.
What are the major applications of Alumina Trihydrate (ATH) Flame Retardant?
ATH is utilized as flame retardant in wide range of end user industries such as electronics, wires and cable, building and construction, furnishings, and many more. ATH is mainly used as a filler in different polymer systems such as epoxy resins, polyester resins, PVC, polyurethane, and so on. . ATH is often associated with its role as a non-halogen flame retardant and smoke suppressant, and thus is the largest selling fire retardant additive in the world. ATH flame retardant additives can be used to provide flame resistance for a variety of plastic resins such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene, TPE, TPU, TPV, and others.
