General & Use:

FR-20-200 is a high purity Magnesium Hydroxide, based on mineral raw material from the Dead Sea and special production technology. It is a non-halogen flame retardant with low smoke emission. During the decomposition process no toxic or corrosive gases are generated. In addition, it is an excellent smoke suppressant and acid scavenger. Its high thermal stability (up to 340°C) enables its use in high performance polymeric formulations. FR-20-200 is a coated grade of Magnesium Hydroxide intended for use in wire and cable applications, injection molded articles, electronics, electricity and home appliances. Its stearic coating makes it especially suitable for Polyolefins, Polyolefin Copolymers as well as PVC. The stearic coating reduces friction, improves dispersion and allows higher throughputs. FR-20 is also available in non-coated and other specialty grades which are suited for specific applications
