Dynamic Modifiers unveils new non-halogenated FR compound

Davida Erdahl

Dynamic Modifiers has introduced a new non-halogenated FR compound known as PAL…VersaCHAR. The compound can obtain a new stage of flame retardant efficiency as a coating for nonwovens and technological textiles. Dynamic Modifiers is a major specialty compounder concentrated on custom polyolefin compounds and concentrates, based mostly in Atlanta, Ga.

PAL…VersaCHAR has been analyzed to one,950°C, the maximum to date, and shown to protect against all flaming drips of polymer. Char bodies variety on the compound floor, defending towards flame development and delaying heat transfer. Rapid self- extinguishing burn off behaviour shields any underlying substrate to which it is adhered, in accordance to Dynamic Modifiers.

The compound has passed ASTM E84 (Class A) with a fifteen/10 ranking, which consists of ‘clean’ smoke generation of only two.3 per cent of the allowable ASTM smoke restrictions. In addition, the compound is gentle body weight, at a precise gravity of one., and a
