The unique one-part system is halogen-free and does not require antimony or aluminium trihydrate (ATH) to achieve its fire retardant and low smoke properties, the company explains. Composites made from Firepel K140 are said to be up to 30% lower in density than standard composites using ATH, meeting the automotive and construction industries’ increasing needs for lighter weight parts.

“Firepel K140-MTI exhibits outstanding flame and smoke properties, and offers many handling and processing benefits compared to other products on the market,” said Mike Diehl, Business Manager for AOC. “We will continue to develop innovative solutions that meet the needs of the industries we serve.”
