FRX Polymers Opens First Full Scale Commercial Plant to Manufacture Halogen Free Flame Retardant Polymers

FRX Polymers®  announced the opening of its Antwerp manufacturing plant dedicated to the production of halogen free polyphosphonate flame retardant (FR) plastics. The first full scale commercial plant will focus on supplying Nofia® polyphosphonates – FRX Polymers’ line of homopolymer, copolymer, and oligomer FR materials.

Nofia inherently flame retardant plastics and additives address the end-users’ need for more environmentally friendly and less toxic flame retardants. Nofia can be used to enhance flame retardancy with little impact on the inherent characteristics of the targeted polymer or resin. In several engineering resin systems, Nofia retains transparency and enables processability. Nofia polyphosphonates increase the product developer’s toolbox by providing flame retardancy with other desirable characteristics due to its polymer form. For example, Nofia polyphosphonates have demonstrated use in flame retarding biorenewable polymers and recycled fibers and plastics providing a good balance of properties.

The new plant will address the growing demand for Nofia products from multiple markets including electronic devices, lighting and fixtures, fiber for commercial textiles, automotive, aerospace and building and construction… Read more: Click here
