End User Demand for Better Flame Retardants is Increasing

Here’s a fun fact that you already know: flame retardants are used in just about EVERYTHING! And by everything I mean your coffee maker, cell phone, wood products, cables, airplane adhesives, paints & coatings, potting compounds, urethane foams, and the list goes on and on.


What you may not know is that better flame retardants are being demanded by customers and the government alike. End users are requesting more flame retardancy as flammability regulations become more stringent.


Have no fear. Palmer Holland has a wide supply of high quality flame retardants from industry leading manufacturers like Clariant, Focus Chemical, and TOR Minerals. These products are available from Palmer Holland in addition to our technical, national sales team that is ready to understand the challenges your business is facing and provide unique and effective solutions.
