HECO®FLAM
FLAME RETARDANT ADDITIVE

With our HECO®FLAM flame retardants, your plastics can withstand fire and flame. Our halongenated additives reduce the flammability of polymers while fulfilling fire protection classes B1 and B2.

FLAME RETARDANT

Spread of plastic fires is slowed down or prevented.

HECO®FLAM flame retardant for the plastics industry

When customers burn for our product, that is very positive. What must not burn, however, is the customers’ product itself. To ensure that the finished plastic products only catch fire with difficulty or not at all, our flame retardants have a flame-retardant effect.

Our HECO®FLAM flame retardants contain halogens that form radicals. Since halogens are very reactive, they bind to the hydrogen in the air and act as hydrogen halides like a diluting agent. The result: a flame-retardant effect for the polymer. We rely on halogen-containing flame retardants in our additive portfolio because they work very efficiently and effectively. They contain chlorine, bromine and fluorine, but can be used in a very targeted way and in small dosages. In our research and development we are already working intensively on halogen-free flame retardants, which are becoming more and more interesting for our customers due to their better environmental compatibility. Currently, however, the required amount of halogen-free flame retardant additives is still very high and therefore not yet cost efficient.

Our flame retardants HECO®FLAM 575 PE and HECO®FLAM 581 PE can be used for both polyethylene and polypropylene. As flame-retardant additives, they don’t let anything burn and protect your polymers from fire and flames.

HECO®FLAM FLAMMHEMMER flame retardants for plastics include:

575 PE

suitable for polyethylene, polypropylene; Fire retardant; used in combustible materials; additive forms a white pigmented effect in the finished product; meets the requirements of B2 – DIN 4102 and B1 – DIN 4102

581 PE

suitable for polyethylene, polypropylene; Fire retardant; used in combustible materials; additive forms a white pigmented effect in the finished product; meets the requirements of B2 – DIN 4102 and B1 – DIN 4102
