Flame retardent plastics

Flame retardant plastics

Semi-finished products such as sheets, round rods and finished parts made of polypropylene (PP)

Flame retardant plastics: the materials - technical properties

A poor property of plastics with all the advantages to offer is usually good flammability. This is undesirable or even prohibited in applications in the construction industry, electronics, aerospace technology, the automotive industry or other sensitive areas of application. An additive is added to the plastic to prevent ignition, independent further burning and or burning dripping for a certain time or completely.

From B1 to UL94 V0 - Everything is possible

Above the class “flame retardant” (in the building industry mostly with requirement of the B1 fire class according to DIN 4102, achieved by a very high oxygen index in the material), which indicates that the plastic resists the flames for a certain time and thus gives people time to e.g. safely escape from a burning house instead of acting as a fire accelerant, there is the “flame retardant” class, mostly tested according to UL 94 (Underwriters Laboratory) and certified with the class V0. These plastics extinguish when the flame is removed and do not drip off burning (see the UL page and the description of the UL 94 test for the exact definition). Flame retardant plastics can be used in part as a fire barrier.

Our STARlight with Duravolta

STAR PP V0 material is a PP with high additive content in white color and own UL listing down to thin films up to 0.1 mm thickness. Unlike most other PP V0 materials STAR PP is flame retardant halogen free according to IEC 61249-2-21 and is RoHS compliant. The granulate as well as the production of sheet material and film is made in Germany.

Besides STAR PP V0 material, we also have the possibility to offer other materials, such as ABS V0 (ABS flame retardant).
