HFFR for thermosets

For use in plastics, Budenheim has consistently developed environmentally friendly flame retardants further to enable their direct incorporation during the production of the various base materials. Through this process, they protect household appliances, aircraft cabins, electronic cables and many other useful devices that have become an indispensable part of our everyday lives.

In addition to the mechanical and electrical properties, excellent flame retardants are required for the thermoset resins (i.e. unsaturated polyester resins, epoxy resins). FR systems for composites must be well balanced. Budenheim developed different halogen free intumescent blends based on APP for epoxy resins, for UP resins, gelcoats and laminates.

This ensures that the ever-increasing technical and legal requirements can continue to be fulfilled in sensitive areas of application, such as public transport, air travel, the construction industry, industrial buildings.

The most important property of Budenheim's phosphates and other halogen-free flame retardant agents: they remain thermally stable at temperatures considerably higher than 300 ºC. Budenheim’s advanced solution packages for composites are well balanced, synergistic mixture of flame retardants. These ready-to-use system with improved intumescence are non-toxic and non-corrosive.
