SONGWON recently announced that it has further developed its proprietary halogen-free technology and has added a new product to its portfolio of flame-retardant synergists. SONGFLAME® WB 201 solvent-free, aqueous, flame-retardant dispersion is designed especially for the coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE) market and is also suitable for textile applications requiring flame-retardant properties. The benefits of the new product reportedly include easy handling for customers working with waterborne systems, as well as low viscosity and a high active content.

“SONGFLAME® products provide a powerful building block for formulators of halogen-free materials,” said André Le Gal, leader Market Center Flame Retardants at SONGWON. “They allow our customers to achieve an ideal balance between increasingly stringent market requirements and overall cost efficiency. There has been significant progress since the launch of the SONGFLAME® range in terms of project momentum and technical approvals despite the challenging market conditions for our customers resulting from the impact of COVID-19.”

In keeping with its commitment to help improve sustainability throughout the value chain, SONGWON reports that it has built up the new flame-retardant synergist portfolio with a view to promoting the growth of halogen-free solutions. SONGFLAME WB 201 is the latest addition to SONGWON’s water-based portfolio. Developed to meet the increased demand for environmentally acceptable additives, the new ranges combine the efficiency of conventional products with the benefits of water miscibility, low-to-zero VOC generation, and easy dosing and handling.
