Updated comprehensive overview about flame retardants available

The article about flame retardants in ULLMANN'S Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, the benchmark reference in chemistry and chemical and life science engineering, was just recently updated.

Besides general information about the different flame retarding mechanism, test methods and commonly used products for different applications and resin systems, also a chapter on system development can be found.

The article which can be found here, concludes with a discussion on environmental and human health aspects, general trends and developments and thus sheds light on the most diverse facets of the topic of flame retardants.
