What are flame retardants?

About this website

Flame retardants are chemicals which are added to many materials to increase their fire safety. For example, many plastics are highly flammable and therefore their fire resistance is increased by adding flame retardants in order to reduce the risk of fire.

On this website you find information about the different kinds of flame retardants, which role flame retardants have in fire safety and which advantages and disadvantage their use has.

Clariant Corp. maintains this website (see impressum). You can find more information on Clariant's flame retardant range at  www.exolit.com
