Flame Retardants

Emerald Innovation™, Firemaster®, Reofos®

Product description

The product range of LANXESS’s business unit GREAT LAKES SOLUTIONS includes halogenated and halogen-free flame retardants under the trade names Emerald Innovation™, Firemaster®, Kronitex® and Reofos®.

Brominated and phosphorous based flame retardants are still the two most efficient flame retardant groups. Brominated flame retardants are used in plastics (thermoplastics and thermosets), foams, wire & cable, textiles and coatings. Phosphorous products are particularly suitable for formulations based on PVC, polyurethane and epoxy.

In addition to this portfolio we offer antimony trioxide products as synergists and zinc borates as smoke suppressants.
