The fire-retardant film is a compound added to the film, the purpose of which is to inhibit and delay the ignition and burning of the plastic. In order to prevent combustion, it is necessary to design a thermally stable polymer that is less likely to decompose into combustible gas under thermal stress, and it can also dissipate static charges or arcs. Not only can it be fireproof and flame retardant, but it can also help as a barrier to prevent fire. It also has static dissipative properties and is suitable for protecting electronic equipment from electrostatic damage.


In real life, some plastics have the risk of fire. Therefore, the flame retardant additive film can prevent fire and flame from spreading. After the halogen-type FR film burns, it may affect the environment. Other advantages of using halogen-free flame retardant additives include lower smoke generation, making it ideal for enclosed space applications. Fire-retardant and flame-retardant films also reduce the amount of materials used, thereby reducing product costs. Like AT-FR, the halogen-free FR feature can be combined with other composite technologies (such as static dissipation) to provide additional functions to solve multiple problems with a single product solution.
Why use fire-retardant and flame-retardant film? Because the fire retardant film directly helps to save lives.
In most cases, polymers can cause or spread fires because they are organic compounds that decompose into volatile combustible products when heated. However, in many fields, such as electrical, electronic, transportation, construction, etc., the use of polymers is limited by their flammability, no matter how important the advantages of their use may be. The current proliferation of synthetic polymers has greatly increased the "fire risk" and "fire risk", which are the possibility of fire and its consequences on the human body or structure, respectively. In order to meet these legal requirements, flame retardants need to be added to the polymer. In order to increase the escape time of personnel, the role of these additives can slow down the combustion and degradation of the polymer (extinguishing fire), reduce smoke emissions, and avoid dripping.
Use fire-retardant flame retardant film for fire protection. The goal of flame retardant is universal, which can be simply expressed as the following items: prevent fire or delay its growth and spread, that is, flash fire, control the fire resistance of combustible materials, and prepare for fire fighting .
Under fire conditions, the use of fire-retardant and flame-retardant films significantly increases the available escape time, protects residents from fire, promptly informs emergency situations, protects escape routes, and provides refuge areas when necessary and possible.
The use of fire retardant film can reduce the spread of flames, thereby reducing the rate of smoke generation. Less smoke production increases the available escape time. Minimize the impact of fire, and provide partitions according to tenants, occupancy, or large areas. Maintain the structural integrity of the property.
Support firefighting operations, provide identification of fire location, provide reliable communication with refuge areas, and provide access, control, communication and options to the fire department.
In order to prevent fires or delay their growth and spread, material and product performance testing is used to set limits on the fire characteristics of items that represent the main fuel in the system. Most fire safety requirements include testing standards for the fire performance of materials to prevent their growth and spread. Based on a test method for evaluating the fire performance of a single material, the test method is usually based on the measurement of the flame spread rate.
