APYRAL® ALUMINIUM HYDROXIDE - Sustainable flame retardant and functional additives
Aluminum hydroxide (APYRAL®) is a ground or finely crystallized, water-insoluble solid. Flame retardant fillers are used e.g. in cables in tunnels, airports, high-rise buildings and electronic devices. It is particularly their smoke-reducing and non-toxic properties that make them one of the most popular flame retardants. Fillers and additives, e.g. as white pigments in paint or as an all-natural barrier layer in foil.
The functional filler is used as a carrier material for catalytic converters or as a flame retardant in printed circuit boards.
Boehmite in separator film coatings convinces by conveying high level of component reliability. The filler reduces the risk of short-circuiting in lithium-ion batteries to a minimum, and this in turn increases safety for the consumer.
The high temperature stability allows boehmite to be used in demanding applications for technical components in the automotive or electronics industry.
Nabaltec AG is a leading supplier of eco-friendly flame retardant fillers and specialty alumina. Nabaltec manufactures, develops and distributes highly specialized products based on aluminum hydroxide and aluminum oxide through its two product segments, "Functional Fillers" and "Specialty Alumina." Flame retardant fillers are used e.g. in cables in tunnels, airports, high-rise buildings and electronic devices, while additives have applications in catalysis and in electric vehicles. Nabaltec also produces specialty oxides for use in technical ceramics, the refractory and polishing industries.
