Viscosity matching for multi-layer extrusion Use thickness starting at 0. The ColorFast PC resins are available with a wide variety of additional options, including flame retardants non-halogen and halogenglass fiber, UV stabilizer, and mold release. Glass-reinforced grades offer high performance, creep resistance, excellent heat resistance, dimensional stability, and moldability.
Flame Retardants are a class of chemicals added to furniture, electronics, and building materials intended to help prevent fires. Flame Retardants have been shown to cause neurological damage, hormone disruption, and cancer.
One of the biggest dangers of some flame retardants is that they bioaccumulate in humans, causing long-term chronic health problems as bodies contain higher and higher levels of these toxic chemicals. Firefighters are at the forefront of advocating for their disuse due to high exposure to flame retardants and resultant health problems.
The number one killer of firefighters is cancer due to chemical exposure faced in the line of duty. Small children, especially susceptible to toxic health impacts, are exposed at particularly high rates as they explore with their hands and mouths.
We Drink Them Flame retardants are persistent pollutants, which means they do not break down once released into an environment. They can travel far from the point of origin, allowing them to contaminate drinking water. We Breathe Them We all breathe dust everyday, and when that dust contains flame retardants, the chemicals enter our systems.
During fires, flame retardants and their combustion byproducts are released causing toxic smoke clouds that poses health risks for firefighters. Safer States is working with scientists, legislatures, and television manufacturers to reformulate consumer electronics to reduce the use of flame retardants.
In the building materials world, state codes must change to no longer require the use of flame retardants. In many cases, fire safety is attainable without chemicals.
Federal agencies have a role to play too. The Consumer Product Safety Commission, lauded for issuing a guidance arguing against the usage of organohalogen flame retardants, must now make a rule to ensure these harmful chemicals are not used in our everyday products.New Products Development Flame Safe offers confidential assistance to companies desiring to develop new products that require compliance with the appropriate fire safety standards.
Combine functional performance, like color, lubricity, flame retardance, or conductivity, into long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites to obtain materials for more effective products. Rotational Molding is a Process Used to Produce Hollow and Seamless Plastic Parts Process Overview Rotational Molding Benefits Advantages of Plastic Rotomolding Material Selection Resin Options FAQ’s We answer a lot of questions related to rotational molding.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our processes, products. Toxic Flame Retardants. In less than a decade, Safer States and its partners have almost entirely eliminated the use of toxic flame retardants in furniture and baby products.
The flame retardants woven into the fiber aren’t really “natural” – they are added to make the fibers inherently flame resistant.
Also, unfortunately, need to be careful of natural fibers, incl.
cotton. - Welcome - At The R.J. Marshall Company we seek to make our customers successful by supplying innovative, quality focused industrial raw materials and supplies for cast polymer and composites manufacturers and flame retardant solutions for the thermoset and thermoplastics industries.
