Smoke suppressant additive for low-smoke PVC applications

Great Lakes Chemical Corporation : 26 June, 2003  (New Product)
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has launched Smokebloc AOM-100 smoke suppressant and flame retardant additive for rigid and flexible PVC applications with low-smoke requirements.
Smokebloc AOM-100 smoke suppressant and flame retardant additive, an ammonium octamolybdate, effectively reduces the amount of aromatic species released as smoke when charring occurs during a fire. Smokebloc AOM-100 smoke suppressant and flame retardant additive is ideally suited for PVC applications where smoke emission is a critical issue, such as public buildings, aircraft, and mass transit vehicle interiors, and where products must meet tight flammability and smoke production specifications.

'Smokebloc AOM-100 smoke suppressant is generating strong interest in many industries where low-smoke standards are in place,' said Bill Neagle, Great Lakes' vice president of business management for flame retardants. 'This product was designed so that our customers could meet or exceed specifications such as the UL910 standard for wire and cable products installed in ducts, plenum, and other spaces that are used to transport environmental air and the ASTM E84 standard for products used in building and construction.'

Smokebloc AOM-100 can also be used as a partial replacement for antimony trioxide flame retardant in smoke critical applications.
