Press Release   •   Sep 16, 2014 07:25 GMT

Deflamo, the Swedish producer of the natural flame retardant Apyrum, and MKF-Ergis Sp. z o.o. a subsidiary of the Ergis Group and one of Europe’s largest plastic film producers, have finished initial laboratory trials and agreed to continue testing the application on a larger scale. 

MKF-Ergis Sp. z o.o. is a leading manufacturer of PVC and PET rigid films, which are suitable for food packaging as well as for use in the technical and pharmaceutical sectors. MKF-Ergis is now evaluating Deflamo’s cutting-edge flame retardant technology Apyrum for use in their flame retardant film applications. 

In addition to its unique environmentally-friendly qualities, Apyrum is versatile and can be adapted to different applications, including plastic films, which is undoubtedly an important prerequisite for approval as a supplier by MKF-Ergis Sp. z o.o. 

”It has been a pleasure to cooperate with Deflamo so far. We have very high quality demands, and the Deflamo team has been highly engaged through every part of the process, providing both technical support and unlimited access to their established laboratory capabilities. The results of the industrial trials, both in house and undertaken by MKF-Ergis customers, will define our future mutual business. Based on the initial tests we are very excited about our continued cooperation with Deflamo, and hope to establish a long term cooperation in this field,” said Mr Krzysztof Garman, R&D Manager in Ergis Group.

Mr Magnus Jörsmo, CEO of Deflamo, commented, ”From Deflamo’s perspective, the cooperation with MKF-Ergis is very interesting as MKF-Ergis is a large and well known user of flame retardants in plastics, and we hope to establish a long term relationship with MKF-Ergis.”
