Nofia® Homopolymers - Halogen Free Polymeric Flame Retardants for Plastics

Nofia® Homopolymers - Halogen Free Polymeric Flame Retardants for Plastics

Nofia homopolymers have an exceptionally high limiting oxygen index of 65%, which makes it particularly well suited to be used as Flame Retardant additives. Nofia homopolymers are transparent, high flowing polymers with a glass transition temperature of about 90-105°C. The different grades have different molecular weights.

Nofia® Reactive Oligomers - Halogen Free Flame Retardants for Resin Systems

Nofia® Reactive Oligomers - Halogen Free Flame Retardants for Resin Systems

Nofia® OL1001 and Nofia OL3001 Oligomers are low molecular weight, reactive flame retardant additives. The oligomers are phosphorus based additives with phenolic end groups suitable for flame retarding thermoset resins, such as unsaturated polyesters, epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea. They are transparent and highly soluble in polyols and in the typical solvents used in thermoset resin processing.

Paxymer – halogen free (non-halogenated) flame retardant synergist

Paxymer – halogen free (non-halogenated) flame retardant synergist

Paxymer is a patented, green, synergistic flame retardant technology for polyolefins. Paxymer is compatible with halogen free technologies for polyolefin plastics. Paxymer boost the performance of the halogen free flame retardants - allowing for lower dosage of additive and total FR with maintained burning performance. Paxymer offer cost savings of up to 20% and improvement in mechanical and processing properties.

SOL FR® - flame retardants made from natural cellulose

SOL FR® - flame retardants made from natural cellulose

The new generation of environmentally friendly silicone-nitrogen FR cellulose fiber SOL FR® is made from raw materials including natural cellulose and flame retardants. SOL FR® is produced through spinning and solidifying after a grafting reaction between cellulose solution and new silicon-nitrogen flame retardants, which can remain its original frameshape after burning without releasing toxic smoke and exerting bad effect on natural environment after its waste degradation, overcoming the current problems of poisonous gas released by burning phosphorus-containing flame-resistant fabric and water eutrophication in the process of waste degradation.

The filament and stable fiber produced by this technique can be used to make into military protective clothing, firefighter uniform, knitting and weaving textile products for household and public interior furnishings.

Exolit® AP non-halogenated flame retardants – making polyurethanes safer

Exolit® AP non-halogenated flame retardants – making polyurethanes safer

The Exolit® AP products are phosphorus-based flame retardants for polyurethanes that allow meeting stringent emission and migration requirements, because they are inorganic solids with low vapor pressure and solubility. Furthermore stringent fire safety standards such as the FMVSS 302 (SE), EN 13501-1 (E) or DIN 4102 (B2) can be passed.

Exolit® OP non-halogenated flame retardants – Patented chemistry for more safety

Exolit® OP non-halogenated flame retardants – Patented chemistry for more safety

The Exolit® OP products are phosphorus-based flame retardants that allow polyamide and polyester compounds to achieve stringent fire safety standards such as the UL94- V0 rating down to thin thicknesses and for all colors.

Exolit® OP 560 low-emission, non-halogenated flame retardant for polyurethanes

Exolit® OP 560 low-emission, non-halogenated flame retardant for polyurethanes

Exolit® OP 560 is a phosphorus-based flame retardant that allows meeting stringent emission and migration requirements, because it becomes an integral part of the polyrethane polymer by chemical reaction. Furthermore, stringent fire safety standards such as the FMVSS 302 (SE), BS 5852 (Crib 5), FAR 25.853 appendix F, part II and more can be passed.

Halogen free flame retardant for PP applications - HFFR 00228 PP

HFFR 00228 PP is recommended for PP applications where low halogen level are required (Under 2000,1500,1000 PPM). Let down ratio : 2.5-5% for for UL 94 V2 , IEC 61386 , LPS 1207 etc

Greener manufacture of metal-organic frameworks

Greener manufacture of metal-organic frameworks

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of highly porous adsorbent materials that have promising applications in catalysis, gas storage, and gas separation. However, their manufacture often generates large volumes of toxic waste and uses large amounts of energy. Acsynam’s innovative supercritical CO2 technology not only enables the rapid, cost-effective synthesis of high-quality, high-porosity MOFs, but also does so in a clean, sustainable and environmentally- friendly manner. This is achieved by virtually eliminating the high volumes of solvents and corrosive reagents usually necessary for the manufacture of MOFs.

All products feature banana fibre paper: a naturally beautiful and strong plant-based material. Products include banana paper wallets, custom business cards, greeting cards, artist paper and more. 

BioFoam Packaging (EPLA)

BioFoam Packaging (EPLA)

BioFoam is a new patented foam that is comparable to Airpop (EPS-expanded polystyrene). It looks similar in structure and has more or less the same properties as Airpop. The major difference is that Airpop is made of polymers that are based on fossil raw materials (a finite resource). The raw material for BioFoam consists of biopolymers, which are made of vegetable materials (an infinite resource). This makes BioFoam the first foam to have an organic base. The consequence is that BioFoam, like Airpop, can be reused. In addition, it is biodegradable and it can be industrially composted at high temperatures under the influence of moisture and bacteria. BioFoam is durable and is suitable for long-term use in virtually all technical and packaging applications

OrganoComp; A green biocomposite for advanced applications

OrganoComp; A green biocomposite for advanced applications

What makes wood so strong and why do certain plants burn slower than others? For more than 20 years, OrganoClick has been conducting research in biomimetics, studying how nature creates its amazing functions. One result is the unique green biocomposite OrganoComp™ which is both light and strong and can be given specific properties such as fire retardancy and water resistance. At the same time, it can be made large in size and moulded into complex 3-dimensional shapes enabling creative design.
