Laur Silicone Inc. has released its Laur FR-21XX and FR-31XX series, which are materials designed specifically to meet the need for stringent flame inhibition requirements of JL 94 V-0. The FR-21XX and FX-31XX series of materials are built to be cost effective, Laur said, while maintaining flame retardancy.
The flame retardant properties are achieved using innovative technology without the need of polybrominated diphenyl ethers, hexabromocyclodecane addictives, nor other brominated compounds. These silicone rubber compounds are characterized by moderate tensile strength, tear strength and good heat aging properties. They are expected to retain physical properties up to 392 degrees Farenheit.
