Introduction of Inorganic Flame Retardant and applications

The most important inorganic flame retardants are aluminum trihydrate (ATH) and magnesium hydroxide (MDH) used as filler in wide plastic and rubber applications. In addition, antimony trioxide (ATO) is used in large quantities as a synergist with halogenated flame retardants and PVC. Aluminum oxide hydrate (AlOOH or Boehmite) also acts as a synergist in conjunction

How to Choose an Inorganic Flame Retardant for the Plastic and Rubber Industry

Alumina Trihydrate and Magnesium Hydroxide are the most commonly used inorganic flame retardant. Alumina trihydrate (ATH, also read Aluminum Hydroxide) is by far the most widely used flame retardant. It is of low cost, but usually requires a maximum loading of more than 65% in the polymer. Its flame retardancy effect is based on the
