Whether used in residential, commercial or industrial buildings, flame-retardant materials are subject to increasingly stringent regulations. Manufacturers are required to supply building products that exhibit low flame propagation and smoke effluent generation and fulfil all applicable safety specifications, whilst needing to be easily manufactured. At Borealis we offer flame-retardant solutions which meet industry standards.
Our proprietary Casico™ compounds exhibit reduced heat release and smoke generation, whilst producing no corrosive gas emissions, and our lower density compounds permit downsizing, thus contributing to environmental sustainability: less material is required whilst maintaining superior system performance. As LV cables across various applications are frequently used at high temperatures, there’s an increasing demand for cross-linkable flame retardant materials. Our newly developed Visico™ FR compounds are designed to meet challenging requirements in mechanical and electrical properties, are easy to process, and have long storage stability.
