Flame retardants for the plastics and rubber processing industry
MARTINAL® special aluminium hydroxides, ground or finely precipitated, can be used as flame retardants in polymers, which are processed below 200°C. MAGNIFIN®, a high purity magnesium hydroxide, is preferred as a flame-retardant material where the processing temperatures exceed 200 ° C, e.g. for thermoplastic materials and elastomers requiring high process temperatures.
Martinswerk is the world's leading supplier of halogen-free flame-retardants and is the only supplier offering aluminium hydroxide (MARTINAL® standard, ground, low-viscosity, super-fine precipitates) and magnesium hydroxide (MAGNIFIN® finely crystallized).
