 SELF-EXTINGUISHING COMPOUNDS
Self-extinguishing compounds

Flame retardant additives are added to polymers to prevent the development of fire, to interrupt or to slow down combustion processes, and in this way protect lives, property and the environment. These additives are generally classified in two categories: halogenates and non-halogenates.

LATI probably has one the vastest ranges of self-extinguishing products which covers a large spectrum of thermoplastic resins, from polyolefins to PEEK. Some polymers are basically self-extinguishing e.g. PEEK, PSU, PPSU, PES, PPS, while for others it is necessary to add flame-retardant and synergic additives e.g. PP, PA, PBT, ABS, PPA, SPS and others.
90% of LATI's Self-extinguishing products are certified UL and in general the self-extinguishing compounds comply with the requirements of UL94 (flame resistance), of UL746B (thermal resistance) and of UL746A (electrical properties).

Halogen-free Self-extinguishers:
In response to the test guidelines concerning halogen-free self-extinguishing Compounds, LATI has created a series of innovative products.
In addition, these products satisfy the requirements of the recently modified directive IEC 60335-1 (4th Edition) relative to electrical equipment which is not monitored in the most critical conditions as regards fire hazards. These involve: GWFI >= 850°C, GWIT >=775°C, Heat resistance (balling identation test) >= 125°C and Tracking Resistance (CTI) >= 250 V.
