Function of flame retardants

Function of flame retardants

The demands placed on modern flame retardants have changed considerably over the past years. In addition to effectiveness in the case of fire, environmental considerations play an increasingly determining role in all phases of the product life cycle - including production, processing, application and recycling.


Flame retardants are an important part of fire protection as they not only reduce the risk of a fire starting, but also that of its propagation. This function increases escape time and thus protects humans, property and the environment.
