Emerald Innovation™ 3000
Print Friendly Version
Emerald Innovation™ 3000 flame retardant is a highly effective, sustainable brominated polymeric flame retardant offering a variety of enhanced performance properties. This innovative flame retardant is an excellent replacement for Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) in both expanded polystyrene (EPS) and extruded polystyrene (XPS) foam products.
BENEFITS & FEATURES
It is a stable, high-molecular weight polymer
Its polymeric structure makes it not readily bioavailable, thus preventing the environmental
concerns that threaten the sustainability of other commercially available brominated flame retardants for Polystyrene foams
It is a comparable alternative to HBCD in EPS and XPS foams, requiring minimal reformulation to use in existing production lines
Can be used with FR synergist that are commonly used today in EPS/XPS applications
Its reduced tendency to retain water helps to decrease the residual water content of EPS
beads, providing improved process efficiency
Enables formulators to achieve applicable fire safety standards for polystyrene foam insulation. In pilot plant scale trials in XPS, Emerald™ 3000 flame retardant successfully passed the EN ISO 11925-2 and German DIN 4102 B2 flammability tests.
Provides comparable fire performance in polystyrene foam to foam containing HBCD
at equivalent bromine levels
