Flame retardant for EPS ( Expandable Polystyrene ) and XPS ( Extruded Polystyrene )

General information:

Into Chemicals is offering the ’ IC RK-972’  which is the better product to replace HBCD in EPS and XPS. The market is searching hard to replace HBCD (Hexabromocyclododecane) and with our product it finds the solution.

About benefits & cost savings:

  • IC RK-972 is flame retardant additive, one of the big advantages of the IC RK-972 is it low dosage that it needed to get the needed flame retardant requirement. The influence on the physical properties are brought back to a minimum.  Furthermore the IC RK-972 has a perfect thermo stability and Uv- stability.
  • The IC RK-972 is mainly used for EPS ( Expandable Polystyrene ) and XPS ( Extruded Polystyrene ), polypropylene and other styrol resins.

Compare with your actual technology:

  • The IC RK-972 shows better flame retardant efficiency than brominated aromatic flame retardants. The behaviour of the product is better and saver for your processing equipment.
  • The IC RK-972 is especially more appropriate for plastic products with high processing temperature. The RK-972 is excellent alternative of HBCD.
