Boron in fire retardancy
Mitigate flame risk without compromising quality
When it comes to fire retardant additives, there’s no shortage of options available today. That means you can spend hours testing to find the right formulation—one that’s safe, works with your process, and exceeds flammability requirement standards. A faulty formulation can be costly. It can cause damage to your equipment and may keep your product from reaching the market.
Many materials producers choose boron as a key fire-retardant additive. Why? Because borates possess strong synergistic effects when used with other flame retardants and are effective at enhancing formulation performance. Compared to other additives such as antimony trioxide, borates are a cost-effective, naturally occurring choice.
