Our ultimate goals were to determine the activation energies and the frequency factors of alumina trihydrate
reinforced allylester resins and to compare the cure kinetics of reinforced allylester with those of pristine allylester.
Fine precipitated alumina trihydrate
is reportedly an environmentally-friendly, mineral-based flame retardant and smoke suppressant used in a variety of polyolefin resins, including in low-smoke wire and cable applications within the energy sector, which is benefiting from rising energy consumption in China and other rapidly developing economies throughout Asia-Pacific.
Gains are expected to be concentrated in brominated and phosphorus compounds and in more specialized antimony oxide and magnesium hydroxide formulations, while alumina trihydrate
(the largest-volume product because of its low cost and wide range of uses) records less rapid growth.
Huber Engineered Materials has introduced Hydral Coat 2 Ultrafine Alumina Trihydrate
(ATH) for use in coil coatings and other high performance coating-related applications.
Its inorganic chemical expertise has resulted in advancing the art in specialty silica and silicates, alumina trihydrate
, magnesium hydroxide, barium sulfate and natural calcium carbonate, Headquartered in Atlanta, Ga.
Products featured in the literature include aluminum silicates, alumina trihydrate
, aromatic oils, ASTM reference oils, barium sulfate, blowing agents, calcium carbonate, kaolin clays, fatty acids, gilsonite, iron oxides, magnesium carbonates, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium oxide, microcrystalline wax, naphthenic oils, paraffinic oils, paraffin wax, petrolatums, plasticizers (phthalates), polymers (EPDM, polychloroprene and nitrile), precipitated silica, rubber accelerators, solvents, stearates, strontium sulfate, sulfur, white mineral oils, zinc dust and zinc oxide.
The product with the largest volume usage, alumina trihydrate
(ATH), will continue to grow and maintain its number one volume ranking, but it will increase at a slower rate than other flame relardant products.
