Due to the growing health concerns regarding the toxicity of flame retardants in polymers in Europe and the Americas, Polymer Compounders Limited (PCL) investigated ways to develop a safer alternative. They achieved their goal by creating the Notoxicom® family of flame retardant materials. Notoxicom® B6000 (FR PC/ABS) and Notoxicom® S6000 (FR PC/ASA).
Notoxicom® is our registered tradename for specialist halogen and aryl phosphate ester free flame retardant polymers. These materials are unique because they retain industry-leading performance whilst being much less toxic to human health. Notoxicom® polymers can be used in many different applications, such as battery casings to state-of-the-art medical devices.
“World’s first UL94 V0 at 0.8 mm halogen and aryl phosphate ester free, very low toxicity FR PC/ABS and FR PC/ASA materials that do not compromise material properties and give lightweighting advantages.” – (Stephen Blair, 2022, Technical Manager).
