By helping to prevent fires or reducing their rate of spread, effective flame retardants can extend the time available for action and intervention. This makes flame retardants an essential layer of fire safety strategies.
A key driver behind the science of fire retardancy is changing societal demands. Peoples’ expectations of comfort, convenience, cost-effectiveness and reliability – be it in their home, their office, their car – are constantly increasing.
Due to its unique interaction with the combustion process, bromine is an extremely efficient flame-retardant technology. This means that a relatively small amount is required to achieve the required flame resistance.
