Paxymer will share insights from real customer experiences on "What it takes to go halogen free." Halogenated flame retardants have set the standard in the plastics industry since its beginning. Studies have shown that bromine/chlorine have adverse effects e.g. more toxic smoke, no improvement to fire spread/combustability and persistent and toxic characteristics. As a response, a new generation of halogen-free flame retardants have emerged. Although they have a better environmental and health performance, their implementation requires a new approach. Especially in order to handle mechanical properties, price, and processing properties.
"The move to halogen-free includes a learning curve. Achieving balance performance is not trivial. Paxymer has done this for a number of years with a number of customers. This talk will share some of that insight" Says Amit Paul MD of Paxymer.
