Flame retardant chemicals are chemicals or compounds which are added to combustible materials in order to prevent or delay combustion of these materials rendering them more resistant to ignition. The flame retardant materials, impede, inhibit or suppress the rate of combustion of the material to which they are added.
These chemicals interfere with the combustion process at any of the stages such as heating, ignition, decomposition or during the flame spreading stage. The amount of flame retardant to be incorporated depends on the level of safety that is desired for the end use. These chemicals may be used in combination with some other chemicals or used singly to impart flame retardancy. Moreover, selection of a particular chemical depends on the material to which it is to be added as different elements which compose the chemical react differently with fire. This flame retardant chemicals market report includes market assessment for extensively used flame retardant chemicals across the globe.
