Flame retardants are classified according to usage

Oct 24, 2019

The flame retardant can be classified into an additive type and a reactive type depending on the method of use.

The additive type flame retardant mainly functions as a flame retardant by adding a flame retardant to the combustibles.

The reactive flame retardant introduces a flame retardant group into the polymer material through a chemical reaction, thereby improving the flame resistance of the material, and preventing the material from being ignited and suppressing the propagation of the flame. Among the flame retardant types, the added flame retardant is dominant, and the range of use is relatively wide, accounting for about 85% of the flame retardant, and the reactive flame retardant only accounts for 15%.
