Since the widespread use of organic synthetic polymer materials, humans have begun to face new fire threats, because most of these materials are flammable or combustible. At present, the global fire situation is still grim. According to a rough estimate, the current direct economic loss of fire in industrially developed countries is about 0.1% to 0.2% of GDP, and the indirect economic loss can sometimes reach 1% of GDP.
The use of flame retardants is one of the strategic measures to prevent and reduce fires.
The flame retardant effect of aluminum hydroxide is introduced below. Flame retardant principle Flame retardant is essentially to delay and suppress the spread of combustion, reduce the probability of thermal ignition, and it is a technology that fundamentally suppresses and eliminates uncontrolled combustion. One of the three elements that interfere with the support of combustion (heat, combustibles, oxygen) can interrupt or prevent combustion, that is, flame retardant.
Aluminum hydroxide is one of the earliest inorganic flame retardants in the world, and it is also the largest amount of flame retardants in the world. At present, aluminum hydroxide accounts for more than 80% of the global consumption of inorganic flame retardants. Widely used in various plastics, paints, polyurethanes, elastomers, and rubber products, with three functions of flame retardant, smoke elimination, filling, no secondary pollution, synergy with various substances, non-volatile, non-toxic, Non-corrosive, low price, known as a pollution-free inorganic flame retardant.
