NEXT-GEN TPU FIRE RETARDANTS
Safe, toxic-free and halogen-free TPU flame retardants passing toughest fire standards
Next-gen GERPHOS flame retardants for TPU Thermoplastic Polyurethane resins
Thermoplastic Polyurethane, commonly known as TPU, has emerged as a favored material in various industries due to its unique combination of flexibility, durability, and adaptability. Whether molded into protective cases for electronic devices or cast into high-performance seals and gaskets, TPU’s versatility is unmatched. However, like many plastics, TPUs face challenges related to fire safety. With the integration of advanced solutions like GERPHOS flame retardants, the inherent capabilities of TPUs can be further augmented, ensuring they meet the dual demands of performance and safety. As industries strive for materials that offer both functionality and security, flame-retardant TPUs have become a benchmark in achieving this balance
Next-generation GERPHOS flame retardants significantly bolster the fire resistance of TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane). By incorporating GERPHOS into TPU formulations, the material demonstrates a pronounced reduction in its propensity to ignite and spread flames. This enhancement is essential for applications where TPUs are extensively used, from footwear to industrial components, ensuring they maintain their balance of elasticity and strength while adhering to strict fire safety criteria.
