We offer a range of Armoquell® and Perkadox® products specifically designed to match your flame retardant needs in polyolefins and polystyrene production.

Armoquell FR930 is a very efficient, non-aromatic and non-blooming flame retardant, specially developed for use in polypropylene. It also finds growing use in polyethylene and polystyrene.

Stringent flame retardant specifications can already be reached with addition of relatively low amounts when compared with HBCD and DECA. Armoquell FR930 is a very efficient alternative to these more commonly used flame retardants.

Due to its low melting temperature and high-temperature stability compared to conventional brominated flame retardants, Armoquell FR930 gives an excellent dispersion, reduces corrosion in the extruder and gives a high UV stability of the final compound. The free flowing powder allows for easy handling and dosing.

Flame Retardant Synergists

Perkadox 30 and Perkadox BC-FF act as flame retardant synergists in combination with brominated flame retardants such as Armoquell FR930. They allow for the use of significantly lower amounts of flame retardant synergists like antimony trioxide, while maintaining the same level of flame retardancy. Due to their relatively high thermal stability, they are particularly suitable for use in polyolefins and polystyrene.
