Roflam 6 is a reactive halogen-free flame retardant intended for plastics. The product inhibits the solid-phase combustion process, creating on the surface of the material a charred layer that cuts off the access of oxygen from the environment and thus reduces the burning process. Due to the synergy of phosphorus-nitrogen (the product contains both elements embedded in the chemical structure), the created intumescent coatings provide extremely effective protection that allows compliance with rigorous criteria regarding flammability.
In addition, Roflam 6 as a halogen-free solution does not generate toxic gas during the combustion process. This is a major advantage of the product, especially when compared to halogen solutions.
Due to the presence of hydroxyl groups in its chemical structure, Roflam 6 reacts with the active centres of polymer chains (polyurethanes, epoxides, vinyl ester). In this way, the product is permanently bonded to the polymer matrix, which prevents the additive from migrating to the surface of the material, thus maintaining non-flammable properties throughout the entire service life.
Roflam 6 is used in construction materials based on epoxy, vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester resins, as well as in rigid polyurethane foams.
