Hendrik Wermter, Chemische Fabrik Budenheim, presented results with their new PIN FR systems. These systems are mainly based on melamine polyphosphate and a recently developed polymeric DOPO-derivative (organo-phosphorus PIN FR).
The new PIN FR systems are especially designed for GF (glass filled) engineering plastic application. In glass filled PA-6 and PA 6.6, UL94-V0 (0.8mm) at 20 – 23% loading combined with very good GWIT (>800°C) results (glow wire ignition test) have been achieved. The observed smoke toxicity was very low (3-8 times lower than standard under DIN 5510-2). Compounders show high interest in this new PIN FR system due to its very good processing properties i.e. good thermal stability and especially low corrosion.
