Only low loadings needed for this FR

Flexible foam producers and users such as in the furniture and automotive seat sectors now have what this manufacturer says is an environmentally appealing alternative for flame retarding. Antiblaze 117HF is a halogen-free flame retardant (FR) that is said to achieve the same protection as existing FRs with up to 30% less addition. The additive also gives good non-scorching performance. Using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) criteria, the product was found to be non-persistent and non-bioaccumulative, says Steve LeVan, the company’s VP for FRs.
