Flame Retardant Polypropylene compounds

Our Retpol grades are designed to meet specified flammability tests, as required by the end-use specification.  These tests may include:

  • UL94 ratings (HB,V-2,V-1,V-0,5VA) for general appliances
  • Glow-wire ignition temperature ratings for electrical applications
  • AS/NZS 1530.3 testing requirements for building materials

Flame retardant systems can be based on either halogenated hydrocarbons with antimony trioxide synergist or non-halogenated systems.

Our Retpol grades exhibit a range of mechanical properties and melt-flows, and can be tailor-made to the needs of the application.

Typical applications include appliance housings, electrical housings, light-fittings, institutional seating and stadium seating.
