What is flame retardants?

Flame retardants are substances that play a crucial role in extinguishing fires or preventing their outbreak. These substances encompass a range of chemicals, including chlorine, bromine, antimony oxides, aluminum hydroxide, molybdenum compounds, zinc, magnesium oxides, organic phosphate esters, phosphates, halogenated phosphorus, and inorganic phosphorus-containing salts. They also consist of graphene, graphite, nitrogen compounds, silicon-based materials, and tin. By being incorporated into materials or applied on surfaces, flame retardants effectively inhibit combustion. They are commonly used as coatings on furniture, enhancing their safety and making them fireproof. Additionally, they find application in coating carpets, curtains, mattresses, and fabrics, providing protection against sparks and flames in the event of a fire. The extensive use of flame retardants extends to the manufacturing of electronics and electrical devices such as laptops, smartphones, computers, televisions (TVs), and cables and wires for various household appliances. In transportation, flame retardants are applied to different components of automobiles, trains, and airplanes, including seats, seat covers, overhead compartments, and bumpers, to ensure fire resistance and passenger safety. By reducing heat release and limiting the production of smoke during combustion, flame retardants contribute to the overall safety of combustible materials and products. As a result, they find widespread application across residential, commercial, and construction sectors worldwide.
