Application - Paper & Cardboard


Paper & Cardboard


For paper or cardboard applications such as decorative arts, automotive, theater, educational, furniture, packaging and electrical industries, some level of fire safety is often needed.


FR-11 (ammonium bromide) with its 81% bromine and 14% nitrogen on the same molecule is a highly efficient FR for paper and cardboard. Its high solubility in water allows the preparation of sprays easy to apply on paper or cardboard objects.


FR-11 can also be easily implemented into the paper at wet end stage, before the coating or surface sizing.


FR-11 is not durable and if exposed to rain or high levels of moisture, repeated treatment might be needed.


FyrolTM 6 and FyrolTM PNX are also recommended for fireproofing of paper by impregnation.
