- Flame retardants are chemicals used
in thermoplastics, thermosets, textiles and coatings that inhibit or
resist the spread of fire. These can be separated into several different
classes of chemicals: Minerals such as aluminium hydroxide ATH,
magnesium hydroxide MDH, huntite and hydromagnesite , various hydrates,
red phosphorus, and boron compounds, mostly borates.
- The annual consumption of flame
retardants is currently over 1.5 million tonnes per year, which is the
equivalent of a sales volume of approx. 1.9 billion Euro (2.4 billion
- Fire is a chemical reaction between
oxygen and a fuel, triggered by energy (an ignition source or heat).The
presence of heat, fuel and air in a fire can act in concert to propagate
combustion until one or more is removed. Heat causes the thermal
degradation of fuel into combustible gases and heats the air, making it
more reactive. Flammable gases combine with air to generate a fire. The
fire in turn releases heat, which continues the cycle. Flame retardants
have become a class of chemicals which receive more and more scientific
and public attention.
- Phosphorus (non-halogenated),
inorganic and nitrogen flame retardants are additives that can be added
to or applied as a treatment to organic materials such as plastics and
textiles to impart fire protection to the materials. Nitrogen based
flame retardants are typically melamine and melamine derivatives (e. g.,
melamine cyanurate, melamine polyphosphate, melem, melon). They are
often used in combination with phosphorus based flame retardants.
- Phosphorus based flame retardants
include organic and inorganic phosphates, phosphonates and phosphinates
as well as red phosphorus, thus covering a wide range of phosphorus
compounds with different oxidation states.
- The Army’s mad for smartphones. It’s
testing Android devices it bought from the local electronics store to
see how they operate on its experimental, homebrewed data network. And
one thing it seems to have forgotten to buy for the dismounted soldiers
who’ll have to furiously tap the screens to send data during firefights:
- A recent request for information from
the Army says that there’s a need for a “capacitive touch screen
compatible Army combat glove.” It’s a simple request: a “combat
survivable” glove with enough stuff on the fingertips to ensure the
“tactile accuracy” of troops mashing the screens on their handsets.
Combat survivable, in this case, means flame-retardant.
- The consumption of flame-retardant
chemicals worldwide in 2008 was more than 3.2 billion pounds. BCC
estimates this volume to reach nearly 4.3 billion pounds worldwide by
2014, for a CAGR of 4.9%.
