As for the oil base of synthetic polymers, most of these materials are highly flammable. On the other hand, due to the high usage of polymers in today’s world, controlling the flammability of these materials is of significant importance. The degree of flammability of a polymer is determined by how it is decomposed at low temperatures and the production of gaseous products as well as how these products are burned.
In simple terms, flame retardant masterbatches are additives that reduce their flammability by adding to polymeric formulations through various mechanisms.
Ciba Polymer Kabir has marketed a variety of halogenated and non-halogenated flame retardant masterbatches in order to use in various applications such as electrical components, construction components, transportation, textiles and fibers.
