Why Does PP Need To Be Flame Retardant?

Jun. 17. 2019

As a PP Compound Supplier, let us explain why PP needs to be flame retardant.

Polypropylene (PP) has the advantages of low density, good rigidity, high strength, chemical resistance, etc., and excellent processing performance, and is widely used in many fields such as mechanical parts, electronic appliances, and civil parts. At the same time, due to the low price of PP, many product models, and complete modification methods, it is most desirable to realize the engineering of general plastics.

However, PP is extremely flammable, the limiting oxygen index (LOI) is only 17.8, and the droplets are severe when burned. It is easy to spread the flame and cause fire, which is a great safety hazard. The flame retardancy of PP is an important part of its application in the engineering field, and the PP material with excellent flame retardancy can be greatly expanded in use and application range.
