Non-halogenated flame-retardant material

By Scott Jenkins |

Dynamic Modifiers LLC (Atlanta, Ga.; www.dynamicmodifiers.com), a maker of custom polyolefin compounds, recently introduced PAL…VersaCHAR, a non-halogenated flame-retardant polymer designed to be molded over other materials. When exposed to flame, the formulation’s surface chars quickly, which prevents flame spread and rapidly self-extinguishes, the company says. PAL…VersaCHAR can be made into flexible films and sheets, or can be made to coat fabric, protecting the underlying substrate in the event of flame exposure. The company says the material has been successfully tested at up to 1,950°C with no flaming polymer drips. The material is free of heavy metals, halogens and volatile organic compounds, says Dynamic Modifiers, and is designed for demanding industrial and commercial applications.
