Advantages Over Conventional Antimony Trioxide Systems
  • Better penetration of the substrate.
  • Less pigmenting or whitening effect for deep mass tone colors.
  • Easier handling and processing. Liquid dispersions will not clog spray guns.
  • Translucency for coatings, films and laminates.
  • Easy compounding; no special dispersing equipment required.
  • High FR efficiency for minimal added weight or change in hand.

1.5 - 8 % (In textile, paper, and plastics applications), 5 - 20 % (halogen use level)
Usage Level
  • The usage level of the various grades depends on the material being treated, the test procedure, the ratio of halogen to antimony oxide, and other ingredients being used.
  • It is not possible to predict flame retardance performance; therefore, experimental evaluation is required.
  • Typical ratios of halogen to antimony are 5:1 to 2:1.
