The evolution in flame retardant masterbatches

AIPLUS PP is a new flame retardant master for PP, with higher performance than the traditional flame retardants of the same UL 94 V2 class.

AIPLUS PP is used in the following application areas:

  • injection molding
  • pipe extrusion (smooth, corrugated and soundproofing) and profiles
  • iber extrusion (thread, flock and spunbond) for TNT, fabrics, carpets etc.

AIPLUS PP, in accordance with the main EU directives, is free from PBB and PBDE. Its formula, for which a national and international patent was granted, affects the final product by:

  • delaying the ignition start
  • reducing the flame time
  • reducing the damaged quantity and surface
  • reducing the emission of fumes
  • suppressing noxious, toxic, corrosive and black fumes formation
  • eliminating blooming
  • optimizing the cost-efficiency ratio.

Thanks to its flame retardancy properties, the absence of toxic and dangerous substances and the cost/performance ratio, it is one of the highest quality Flame Retardants in the market.

The particular composition of AIPLUS grants an excellent flame retardancy performance to the finished products.

AIPLUS PP complies with the main flame retardancy regulations such as UL94-V2, IEC 61-50-92 (EN 60335-1-2-31) and with the European directives 2002/95/EC; 2002/72/EC and 2000/53/EC.

Thanks to its polyolefinic base (homopolymer, copolymer), it presents a wide range of physical, mechanical, thermal and chemical features; furthermore, it can be supplied natural and colored (RAL or sample).

AIPLUS in a nutshell:

  • low specific weight
  • halogen free
  • excellent thermal stability
  • excellent processability
  • optimal dispersion
  • no corrosion.

It can be processed all types of machines (dosing units, presses, extruders, etc) generally used for transforming PP, without the typical processability and corrosion problems often characterizing traditional flame retardants. It is produced in granular form, easy to use and handle, with no dispersion of powders in the environment.

AIPLUS PP is not hygroscopic and therefore does not need drying before use. It can be stored without any particular precautions. Depending on the required volumes, it is normally packed in 25-kg bags and in Big Bags.
