Flame Retardants

We offer a range of colloidal dispersions and powders based on small particle size technology and surface treatments – particles that are as small as 5 nanometers or 5 billionths of a meter. Our proprietary technology enables us to offer unique technology solutions to our customers.

NYACOL’s Antimony Pentoxide (APO) is REACH registered and non-hazardous. Our products can reduce pigment cost by 50 – 70% in colored flame retardant resin systems.

APO is used in a variety of applications including textile coatings, spray-bonded non-wovens, adhesives, polyester laminates, epoxy resins, high-temperature cure-UPE, room temperature cure-UPE, polyester/fiberglass, non-polar solvents, thermoplastic polyester, vinyl, ABS, HIPS, polypropylene, polyolefin, and polypropylene fiber to name a few.

NYACOL® has several brand name products sold worldwide for flame retardant applications:

We will work with you to understand your application environment to determine the best NYACOL® product to fit your needs.

NYAGRAPH and NyaChar are used for low smoke and/or non-halogen flame retardant formulas.

In some cases our standard materials are not suitable for a customer’s particular application, or a different composition is required. In these cases, we will consider a custom development project with our customers. We generally proceed under a Non-Disclosure Agreement and we will do the project in such a way that the material can be readily scaled up.
