Providing Comprehensive Solutions

Poymer Additives Group flame retardants and smoke suppressants are used in the following applications:

Low-Smoke Flame Retardants

PAG offers products that are produced in a synergistic way to reduce smoke levels in a variety of applications. Utilizing Ammonium Octamolybdate, along with different Borate, Molybdate, Stannate and Hydrate Chemistries. PAG has an arsenal of off the shelf products that can be customized to meet the most stringent Flame and Smoke requirements.

Flame Retardant Plasticizers

PAG offers several Phosphorous based products (FosFlam series) and a Brominated based product (BroFlam) that can be used individually or in combination with other PAG FR and SS products to achieve specific performance requirements.

Char Formers

PAG offers a wide variety of products that work in the Char formation stage including the Charmax NH, FS and LS products series. While these products are off the shelf solutions, we have the ability to customize our products to meet your specific needs.

Non-Halogen Solutions

Charmax NH is an intumescent based FR and smoke suppressant series. This includes Phosphorous/Nitrogen based chemistries. Other Non Halogen based products are our FosFlam plasticizers, Hydrax (ATH), Hydramax (Magnesium Hydroxide). In addition, PAG offers several Antimony Free Charmax AR products (to replace Antimony) which work in the vapor and endothermic phases.

Wire / Cable

This is a major market for PAG where many of the traditional PAG products from the Charmax LS, FR, FS, and BroFlam series are used individually or in combination in PVC and Polyolefin based applications to meet the various tests including UL 94, ASTM E662 Smoke Density, ASTM E84, etc.

Adhesives / Coatings

PAG offers a wide variety of Flame Retardant and intumescent solutions in adhesives and coatings including automotive, Fabric, Energy, High Temperature Nylon, Electronics, General Industry, and Construction.
