Global Flame Retardants Chemical Market: Overview

Flame retardant chemicals are basically added to consumer goods, namely clothing, furniture, coverings for electronic products, and for baby products to lessen their flammability. They do not alter the flammable property of the parent material but they do thwart the quickness of the burning of the material. Take for example polybrominated diphenyl ethers or PBDEs which are organobromine compounds used as flame retardant. Akin to various other brominated flame retardants, PBDEs find application in a range of products such as electronics, building marterials, motor vehicles, furnishings, airplanes, polyurethane foams, and textiles. The other kinds of flame retardant chemicals available in the market are be broadly classified as antimony oxide, chlorinated, and phosphorus.
