Marshall Additive Technologies (MAT), part of The RJ Marshall Company, manufacturers, formulates and distributes highly effective polymer flame retardant and smoke suppression additives to meet the most critical of regulatory standards. Our proven, cost effective antimony trioxide and ammonium octamolybdate replacement products are being used around the world. In addition to our broad range of standard products we also specialize in working closely with our customers to create tailored solutions for their applications. This flexibility allows us to customize optimal solutions that balance economics with technical performance.
Vapor Phase Inhibition
This approach works by removing flammable gaseous chemicals from the burning plastic. Chlorine and bromine based chemicals and polymers are used as the active flame retardants with MAT’s C-TEC FR blends FRZ8S, FRZ20S, FRZ30S, FRINT3 antimony trioxide replacements in this phase. Or with antimony trioxide using MAT’s CTAO.
Solid Phase Char Formation
Flame retardants are designed to build up a barrier layer, once the fire has begun thus eliminating the fuel by char and protects the plastic. MAT’s popular C-TEC LS blends LSZ4AF, LSZ8AF, LSZ20A, and ammonium octamolybdate CTAOM work in this way and act as powerful smoke suppressants.
Quench & Cool Systems
Utilize hydrated minerals because of the endothermic water release process that occurs when the system is heated. In the presence of fire, the hydrated minerals release water molecules that cool the polymer and suppresses the combustion process. MAT’s alumina trihydrate (ATH) and magnesium hydroxide work in this way.
