High flammability resistance is a decidedly important property in a whole series of new compounds.
The new materials are used to sheathe cables in the building and transport sectors and for electronic applications.
Additives made by Evonik make it possible to manufacture halogen-free flame-resistant (HFFR) cable jacketing and fillings: an additive endows cables with a smooth surface that can be printed on. The reason: With the help of the new additive organic fillers are distributed evenly throughout the polymer. Extremely high ATH levels of filling in the compound can be achieved with the help of functional silanes.
