    The Crucial Role of Flame Retardants

    Flame retardants play an indispensable role in safeguarding lives and assets by mitigating the spread of fire. They find applications across a multitude of sectors, from automotive and furniture to cutting-edge electronics and robust construction chemicals. Yet, these life-saving compounds have garnered increasing scrutiny for their environmental and health ramifications. This makes the innovation of eco-friendly flame retardants not just desirable but essential. Lohtragon® is involved in this shift, focusing on creating flame retardant systems that are as eco-friendly as they are effective.

    Why Are Flame Retardants Important?

    The primary purpose of flame retardants is to decelerate the rate of fire spread, thereby providing critical time for emergency response and evacuation. Industries such as construction, transportation, and electronics rely on these substances to meet stringent fire safety standards. Materials like polymers, fabrics, and wood are often treated with flame retardants to enhance their fire resistance, a testament to their widespread applicability.

    Case Study Lohtragon® B40 - Advanced Ignition Control & Reduced Flame Spread
    Wood samples treated with Lohtragon® B40 | based on Tripotassium Citrate 1-hydrate exhibited a marked increase in ignition resistance and a significant reduction in flame spread rate. Additionally, treated samples displayed substantial char formation, acting as a barrier and reducing overall material damage. These findings indicate the effectiveness of Potassium Citrate in enhancing the fire-resistant properties of wood
