Sidistar® in flame retardancy

Sidistar® is a flame-retardant synergist which improves the char, by making it stronger and tighter. Sidistar® can reduce smoke development and burning droplets in e.g. UL94 tests. It has proven to be a strong synergist in combination with other flame retardants like: ATO, ATH, MDH, APP, phosphates and phosphinates, improving their efficiency. Compared to other Nano sized materials Sidistar® can easily be dispersed by standard equipment such as twin-screw extruders or other kneaders down to primary particles.
