ASHLAND, MA – Nyacol® Nano Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of BurnEx® 608. BurnEx® 608 is a non-halogen flame retardant additive and flame retardant synergist. The product is a free-flowing white powder with high surface area.
Applications include epoxy and unsaturated polyester laminates, where BurnEx 608 is a synergist with the commonly used phosphorus flame retardant compounds. The use of BurnEx 608 enables the reduction of phosphorus loadings, which helps with laminate properties. BurnEx 608 is especially appropriate for use in laminates that will use lead-free soldering; the temperature resistance of BurnEx 608 is excellent.
In PC/ABS and PBT flame retardant compounds, small additions of BurnEx 608 act as a drip suppressant, enabling the elimination of the commonly used PTFE additives.
In PP, BurnEx 608 can be used as an endothermic and char-forming flame retardant additive.
