Flame Retardant Masterbatch
What are flame retardants?
Flame retardants are added to polymers to increase resistance to ignition, reduce flame spread, suppress smoke formation, and prevent a polymer from dripping. The primary goal is to delay the ignition and burning of materials, allowing people more time to escape the affected area. A secondary consideration is to limit property damage.
Halogenated Flame Retardants
Organic halogenated compounds are the most commonly used flame retardants in plastics. They act to halt exothermic processes by trapping high-energy free radicals after they form. This cools the system, greatly reducing or limiting the supply of flammable gases.

FR TE S CC NAT is a masterbatch containing antimony trioxide and chlorinated paraffine based on LLDPE carrier, with improved thermal stability allowing high processing temperatures. The active ingredient concentration in the masterbatch is 72%.
Use and addition rates
FR TE CC NAT is designed for fireproofing and electrical duct coloring of ICT type. The advised level to pass the EN 50086 - 1 (1993) standard is 3 to 7%, depending on the thickness and diameter of the ringed tube.
