Ecopiren in PVC wire and cable formulations

PVC is one of the most commonly used polymers worldwide. Although PVC already has a certain level of intrinsic flame retardancy, due to high flammability of added plasticizers it is still necessary to add flame retardants to meet most international fire standards. Examples are low voltage cable applications and wire insulations.

All Ecopiren products are perfectly compatible with PVC. An advantage of magnesium hydroxide when compared to ATH is its higher decomposition temperature and its greater heat absorption. See the table below for some comparisons.

Large energy of decomposition expressed in a stronger cooling composition or polymer base in the conditions of pyrolysis or combustion. The high decomposition temperature means that in the formulations containing Ecopiren higher processing temperatures can be used in comparison with ATH. This is a great advantage of the process meaning manufacturing cost savings for the cable producer.

Ecopiren in highly filled compounds

Mineral fillers like aluminum hydroxide (ATH) and magnesium hydroxide (MDH) are often used in LSZH (low smoke zero halogen) polyolefin formulations to provide flame retardant properties for highly filled applications.

Ecopiren is a fine natural magnesium hydroxide white powder which could be included in formulation with other components like polymers, lubricants, colorants and stabilizers. These formulations are often produced as white or colored pellets.

Ecopiren is environmentally friendly and ecologicaly safe. It does not contain halogens and produce no carbon dioxide.

Formulation of polyolefin composition with very high oxygen index value for the usage in internal cable space is shown below. In this composition Ecopiren 10 is used, the oxygen index here reaches values of more than 60%.

Ecopiren in polyolefin wire and cable formulations

During recent years environmental standards and regulations are becoming stricter. Therefore in some areas PVC due to its high chlorine content can’t be used. In such cases halogen-free compositions based on polyolefin are used.

Because of low crystallinity non-halogen compositions may contain different amounts of Ecopiren flame retardants which results in a set of composite materials with a wide range of properties. In recent years such materials have been increasingly applied as insulation of cable products.

A range of Ecopiren flame retardants can be successfully applied in such polymer compositions.

Below are typical polyolefin (EVA) cable formulations containing the Ecopiren 3.5 grade and showing flammability and physical property results for each formulation.
