  • Dow Corning develops advanced flame retardant synergist for polyamide
           compounds
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2017
      Source:Additives for Polymers, Volume 2017, Issue 7
      Dow Chemical subsidiary Dow Corning has launched silicone-based Dow Corning® 43-821 Additive, a new flame retardant synergist designed to overcome the mechanical performance degradation and corrosivity problems caused by high loadings of conventional phosphorus-based flame retardants in filled polyamide (PA) compounds. Used at low levels (1–2%), the new synergist can cut the total amount of organic phosphorus additive needed in PA6 and PA66 compounds by 40%, while still providing high levels of flame retardancy, the company claims.
