Why Choose Magnesium Hydroxide as a Flame Retardant

Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. stated that there are many types of flame retardants, and magnesium hydroxide is undoubtedly the one with the best flame retardant effect. This is because it decomposes and releases bound water when heated to absorb a large amount of latent heat and reduce the filled content. Surface temperature of synthetic materials in flame.

What’s more important is that magnesium hydroxide can not only retard fire, but also suppress smoke. When fires occur, most people are unable to escape due to too much smoke. Magnesium hydroxide can solve this problem very well. Adding Magnesium hydroxide flame retardant can greatly reduce the smoke during combustion and reduce the risk of death from suffocation due to smoke.

Another advantage of magnesium hydroxide flame retardant is that it is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. This advantage makes its demand very high and its application range is particularly wide. For example, hydrogen is used in rubber, chemicals, building materials, plastics, electronics, paints, coatings and other industries. Magnesium oxide. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of magnesium hydroxide and aluminum hydroxide:

Magnesium hydroxide flame retardant

1. Magnesium hydroxide flame retardant is cost-effective, nearly twice as cheap as aluminum hydroxide, and has a large filling capacity.

2. The thermal decomposition temperature of magnesium hydroxide reaches 340°C, which is 100°C higher than that of aluminum hydroxide. It is conducive to increasing the plastic processing temperature, speeding up the extrusion speed, improving the plasticizing effect, shortening the molding time, and the product surface has high gloss and no Will produce surface defects, while ensuring super peeling strength.

3. Magnesium oxide generated after magnesium hydroxide is burned and dehydrated is a high-strength, high-heat-resistant material that can be used as a protective wall to isolate fire sources and toxic and harmful gases. Magnesium hydroxide has strong neutralizing ability with acids and can Quickly neutralizes acidic gases produced by the plastic burning process.

4. Its physical form is granular, which is conducive to uniform distribution, good compatibility with the base material, and has little impact on the mechanical properties of the product.

It can be seen that magnesium hydroxide is a very ideal flame retardant and is used in various industries. Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. believes that as people have higher and higher requirements for environmental pollution problems, magnesium hydroxide The development trend of flame retardants will also get better and better.
