NEXT-GEN ABS FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free ABS flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-Gen GERPHOS flame retardants for ABS resins
ABS, renowned for its tough yet lightweight nature, has gained immense popularity in industries spanning automotive, electronics, and consumer goods. This thermoplastic polymer blends the strength of acrylonitrile, the toughness of butadiene, and the rigidity of styrene, offering products that are durable, impact-resistant, and versatile. Given its widespread applications, many of which are integral components in devices and machinery we rely on daily, the potential fire hazard ABS poses cannot be overlooked. While ABS has inherently commendable mechanical properties, enhancing its fire resistance is crucial in an ever-evolving industrial landscape where safety and material longevity are paramount.
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants significantly enhance the fire resistance of ABS resins. By incorporating GERPHOS into the ABS formulation, the resin’s tendency to ignite and propagate flames is markedly reduced. This improvement is critical for applications where ABS materials are subjected to high temperatures or potential fire sources, ensuring they align with rigorous safety standards and performance expectations.
