NEXT-GEN TPE FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free TPE flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-gen GERPHOS flame retardants for Thermoplastic Elastomer resins
Thermoplastic Elastomers, widely recognized as TPEs, bridge the gap between rubber and plastic, offering the best of both worlds. Their unique composition allows them to be stretched to moderate elongations and, upon the removal of stress, return to their approximate original shape. This malleability and resilience make TPEs a material of choice across a broad spectrum of industries. However, ensuring the fire safety of these materials remains a pertinent challenge. With advancements like the GERPHOS flame retardants, TPEs can confidently stand up to the demands of various applications. From the dashboard in your car to the grip on your toothbrush, flame-retardant TPEs ensure that everyday items are not only functional and comfortable but also meet the highest standards of safety.
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants significantly enhance the fire resistance of TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers). By integrating GERPHOS into TPE formulations, these versatile materials exhibit a marked decrease in their inclination to ignite and propagate flames. This advancement is critical for applications where TPEs are utilized, from automotive parts to consumer goods, ensuring they provide both flexibility and safety in line with stringent fire safety standards.
