PX-200, An Eco-Friendly Flame Retardant

9 August 2023

Flame retardants are chemical compounds designed to slow down or inhibit the spread of fire. They play a crucial role in improving fire safety across a wide range of industries, from construction and electronics to textiles and transportation. By reducing the flammability of materials, flame retardants provide valuable time for people to escape a fire and for emergency responders to mitigate the situation.

One of the key challenges with some flame retardants is that they release harmful substances called halogens when they burn. These substances are not good for our health or the environment. As such, in recent years there has been an increased demand for halogen-free flame retardants.
