The US branch of the Sirmax Group, which specializes in the production of virgin polypropylene compounds, engineering plastics, compounds from post-consumer and post-industrial mechanical recycling, and bio-compounds for a wide variety of applications, has developed several formulations that meet the most stringent industry regulations to prevent the spread of flames, thereby improving fire safety in numerous end-use applications.
These thermoplastic compounds contain flame retardant additives, chemicals designed to reduce combustibility. When added to plastic polymers, these special ingredients delay ignition, slow the spread of flames and reduce the rate of combustion. Because of their unique properties, compounds with such characteristics can offer increased safety against fire, increasing escape time, protecting people, buildings, and tangible assets.
In addition, Sirmax's proposed formulations are designed to be low in toxicity, ensuring minimal impact on human health and the environment. Their versatility means that they can be used in a wide range of applications. For example, the strong market push toward the use of batteries for electric vehicles, is leading car manufacturers to favor increasingly safe materials. The applicability of this type of product, however, is not limited to the automotive industry. Sirmax’s self-extinguishing products are used to build base carriers and other sensitive components for household appliances such as cooktops and washers. They can also be used for boiler covers or power tools (e.g., electric welders and other appliances that can come into contact with motors, control units, and electronic parts that can be ignition points).
