Firebrake 500 protects polymers in very-high-temperature processes
500 is an anhydrous form of Firebrake
ZB that is specially designed for applications in which no water evolution is permitted. You can use Firebrake
500 as a flame retardant, char promoter, and smoke suppressant in a variety of polymers, including:
- High temperature polyamides (PPA) and polyamide 6.6
500 has a significant beneficial effect on the rate of heat release, a quality that is of special interest in aircraft applications. It can also function as a corrosion inhibitor in polymer processing.
