NEXT-GEN HI-SOLID POLYURETHANE FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free High Solid Polyurethane flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-gen GERPHOS flame Retardants for High-Solid Polyurethane resins
High-solid polyurethanes represent a significant stride in the coatings industry. As environmental regulations become more stringent and the push for eco-friendlier solutions gains momentum, these polyurethanes stand out for their ability to deliver high-quality finishes with reduced solvent content. The benefits are manifold: less evaporation into the atmosphere, decreased volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, and overall better performance. They promise longevity, superior adherence, and an impeccable finish, making them the choice for various industrial and automotive applications. However, with these attributes comes the challenge of ensuring that these coatings are not just environmentally friendly but also safe against potential fire hazards. In environments where these coatings are exposed to elevated temperatures or other fire threats, their ability to resist ignition becomes paramount. The quest to achieve this balance, wherein the coating retains its outstanding performance yet remains resistant to fire, underscores the need for cutting-edge solutions in flame retardancy.
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants significantly bolster the fire resistance of high-solid polyurethanes. When GERPHOS is integrated into the formulation of these polyurethanes, the material’s vulnerability to ignition and subsequent flame spread is notably reduced. This advancement is essential for applications where high-solid polyurethanes are employed, ensuring they retain their desired performance characteristics while meeting rigorous fire safety requirements.
