Flame retardant products reduce the spread of flames or resist ignition when exposed to high temperatures. Amout-C50UF is a bromine-free, thermoplastic compound for flame retardancy and smoke suppression.
Amout-C50UF is specifically designed for products sensitive to nucleation during processing. Customers must make their own determinations of addition levels within their manufacturing process to achieve desired results. However, a good initial starting point for polyethylene evaluations is 8% additive level for UL94 VO and 2% for ASTM E84 applications.
