One major cause of the 4 to 5 million fires in Europe and the US that leave tens of thousands killed and hundreds of thousands injured is Electrical and Electronic (E&E) equipment. This is why fire safety is still an area of high concern in developed countries. The use of fire-retardant substances can prevent fatal electrical fire accidents and property or environmental damages caused by such fires.
ICL-IP develops flame retardants which not only reduce f ire risk in high-performance E&E goods, but also meet or exceed the industry’s most stringent environmental guidelines, including all risk assessment procedures according to Europe’s strict REACH guidelines. As eco-friendly, effective and cost effective products, they provide a comprehensive, sustainable solution to the market’s needs for flame retardants.
