22:02 Q&A (Vraag en antwoord)

Embracing the Future of Flame Retardants: The Notoxicom® Revolution

During their comprehensive presentation, James and Richard from Polymer Compounders Limited delved into the evolving landscape of flame retardants. They highlighted their UK-based company’s journey since 1993, specialising in ABS compounds, Polycarbonate, ASA, and various alloy blends, serving giants like Renault and Nissan.

The focus shifted to the challenges in flame retardancy, particularly traditional methods’ limitations and environmental concerns. They discussed the rigorous U-94 specifications, especially the coveted V0 ratings crucial for products like electrical enclosures.

Addressing the changing regulatory environment, they emphasized the scrutiny halogenated flame retardants face due to their toxicity and endocrine-disrupting properties. James and Richard discussed the industry’s pivot towards non-halogenated solutions like FR PC/ABS was discussed, highlighting the need for less toxic, more sustainable alternatives.

Notoxicom® has emerged as the revolutionary solution, significantly setting new standards with its superior halogen-free flame retardancy, non-migratory nature, and low toxicity. Consequently, this innovation represents a considerable shift from harmful additives to a self-extinguishing, polymer-based technology, ensuring safety without compromising performance or recyclability.

Subsequently, the presentation concluded with a compelling call to action for a greener future, urging stakeholders to embrace viable, eco-friendly alternatives like Notoxicom®. Finally, the team expressed sincere gratitude to their partners and collaborators, emphasising the collective effort in driving this transformative change in the industry.
