Applications in thermoplastics
For thermoplastics with a processing temperature below 200°C aluminum hydroxide (ATH) is an ideal halogen-free fire retardant. Example polymers are PE, EVA, PVC, TPU, TPE, EPDM, etc. The decomposition temperature of magnesium hydroxide (MDH) of 330°C makes MDH ideal for use in thermoplastic systems that need to be processed at higher temperatures, such as PP, PA, etc. Huber Advanced Material’s product line includes a variety of surface-treated ATH and MDH grades with surface treatments tailored to the selected polymer system.
Kemgard® smoke suppressants with molybdate technology do not decompose at standard processing temperatures, making them an excellent choice for nylon applications.
Our Martinal® TM, Magnifin® TM and Martoxid® TM series of thermally conductive fillers for heat dissipation provide superior thermal management solutions for easy processing, high filling levels, low abrasion and improved wear. Based on aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide and alumina, they are engineered for balanced processing and physical properties, even at extreme loading levels. Suitable for most polymers.
