Huber’s Fire Retardant Additives Business Introduces Two Technical Innovations

11 October 2016

The Fire Retardant Additives (FRA) business unit at Huber Engineered Materials has introduced two new technologies.

According to Huber, its first innovation is a Martinal highly loaded alumina trihydrate (ATH) core compound for aluminum sandwich panels, which meets Euroclass A2 requirements. Specifically, the compound meets CPR A2s1d0 meaning low smoke formation and no generation of burning droplets. Another unique feature of this patented core compound is that it allows manufacturers of aluminum sandwich panels to produce panels in a continuous production process, which brings several significant benefits, including increased throughput versus compression moulding techniques.

Huber says its second innovation is a new Martoxid Thermal Load Management (TLM) solution, which provides superior heat dissipation and improved heat conductivity in polymer compounds and resins in a wide variety of thermoplastic and thermoset applications, such as E&E, automotive and thermal interface materials. The newly developed Martoxid TM-2000, TM-3000 and TM-4000 product series enable loading levels up to 90% and provide superior thermal conductivity performance up to 3 W/mK, while retaining important material properties. This is a step change innovation to achieve extremely high loading levels while retaining important product properties, which opens up a wide variety application and market opportunities.

The Huber team will be introducing these innovations at K 2016 from 19-26 October 2016 in Dϋsseldorf, Germany in Hall 6, Stand D61 and will be able to provide more information about its innovations and broad portfolio of fire retardant additive solutions, as well as technical advice to improve performance and processing.
