Nofia® Copolymers

Nofia CO3000 and Nofia CO6000

DESCRIPTION
FRX Polymers’ Nofia® copolymers are polyphosphonate-co-carbonates. A range of compositions can be produced from high to low phosphonate content. The copolymers have good impact resistance and glass transition temperatures while maintaining high melt flow and a high limiting oxygen index.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES

UL94 V0 at 0.4 mm while achieving:
- Full Transparency
- High Melt Flow
- Toughness comparable to PC at thicknesses < 2mm

POLYMER SYSTEMS

PC
PC blends

APPLICATIONS

Electrical Equipment and Consumer Electronics
- Housings
Building and Construction / Transportation
- Sheets and fibers
Industrial
- Lighting Applications

Nofia® Additive Oligomers

Nofia® OL3000 and Nofia® OL5000

DESCRIPTION

Nofia® OL3000 and Nofia® OL5000 Oligomers are low molecular weight, flame retardant additives. The oligomers are phosphorus-based additives suitable for flame retarding both thermoplastics (elastomers) and thermoset resins. They are transparent materials and are soluble in a range of organic solvents.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES

Low molecular weight alternatives to polymers useful for optimizing properties (such as flexibility)
Highly soluble in wide range of common organic solvents
Achieves solid flame retardant performance: UL-94 V0 rating
Maintains transparency in final product

RESIN SYSTEMS

Unsaturated Polyesters, Epoxy, Polyurethane and Polyurea

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

Wire and cable
Building and construction

Nofia® Reactive Oligomers

Nofia® OL1001 and Nofia® OL3001

DESCRIPTION

Nofia® OL1001 and Nofia® OL3001 Oligomers are low molecular weight, reactive flame retardant additives. The oligomers are phosphorus based additives with phenolic end groups suitable for flame retarding thermoset resins, such as unsaturated polyesters, epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea. They are transparent and highly soluble in the typical solvents used in thermoset resin processing.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES

Contains reactive end groups for incorporation into resins
Selection of molecular weights to optimize product properties
Highly soluble in solvents used for thermoset processing
Achieves solid flame retardant performance: UL-94 V0 rating

RESIN SYSTEMS

Unsaturated Polyesters, Epoxy, Polyurethane and Polyurea

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

Decorative laminates
Wall panels
Copper clad laminates for printed circuit boards
Protective sheets and coatings

Nofia® Homopolymer

Nofia® HM1100

The Nofia® HM1100 homopolymer has an exceptionally high limiting oxygen index, which makes it particularly well suited to be used as an FR additive. Nofia® HM1100 is a transparent, high flowing polymer with a glass transition temperature of about 105°C. A range of molecular weights can be produced.

BENEFITS AND FEATURES
High limiting oxygen index (LOI) 
Non-halogenated
Non-corrosive and non-migrating
Melt Processable Polymeric FR Additive
High melt flow
Transparent

RESINS SYSTEMS
Polyesters (PET, PTT, PBT, PLA)
Specialty Polyesters (elastomers)
Thermoplastic Polyurethanes

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS
