CASPER, Wyo.—Tolsa S.A. will highlight new technical developments for the Adins flame retardant additives at NPE2018, May 7-11 at the Orlando County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
Adins' range of flame-retardant additives are based on technology that uses natural silicates, which allows for tailored performance benefits and makes it possible to replace part of the high-loaded flame-retardant system, improving processability, Tolsa said.
Adins Clay is designed to work with standard wire and cable formulations based on halogen and halogen-free solutions. Tolsa claims that its Adins line of flame-retardant additives are efficient in HFFR systems based on EVA/PE and alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide.
The additives also have shown significant improvements in fire retardancy in polymer matrixes based on silicones and rubbers in wire and cable applications, Tolsa said. In rubber systems, the firm noted, Adins Clay 80T additive has shown strong impact in smoke and heat release and has been validated with different customers.
Adins Clay 80T is marketed in rubber matrices for cable applications and also in the transport industry, including plastic parts for trains. There are other specific additives within this range, including Adins Clay MS, which is based on a modified natural silicate with a low melting point glass.
