Flame retardant (FR) plastics are essential to devices we use every day, providing a valuable tool in fire prevention
In order for fire to occur its three basic elements (fuel, heat, and oxygen) must exist
The science of flame retardance uses chemical reactions to moderate one or more of these attributes
Flame retardant compounds help mitigate fire danger
Increase plastic’s ignition resistance
Reduce the speed of flame spread
Reduce heat release
Reduce smoke & fume generation
