View challenge: C-7110-0105 - ATO alternative as flame retardant synergist
Our client is seeking a cost effective synergist as an alternative to Antimony Trioxide to deliver halogen in the gas phase from plastic composites during combustion.

Background:

As the field of flame retardants evolves, so is the need for better and more cost effective synergists. ATO has served for years as the major synergist for Halogen based FRs. Current fluctuations in price, and the ongoing need for innovation dictate the need to develop alternatives. As a leading FR producer, with particular strength in Halogen based ones, ICL seeks to replace the ATO with an equally effective, yet price effective material.

Our criteria:

Cost effective
Sustainable
Low carbon footprint
Availability
Similar to Antimony Trioxide in its influence on physical/mechanical properties of the plastic

IP Collaboration:

Funded research
Exclusive IP licensing
Joint development

The proposal would need to clearly describe the technical concept (chemical approach, structure if IP protected) and proof of concept results, if available.
