  • Publication number: 20120037861
    Abstract: A flame retardant composition for flammable plastic materials and a method for producing the same are disclosed. The flame retardant composition comprises 2,4,6-tris(2,4,6-tribromophenoxy)-1,3,5-triazine that contains 1 to 1000 ppm of a metal species of a water-insoluble polyvalent metal compound selected from the group consisting of oxide, hydroxide, carbonate, phosphate, sulfate and silicate present in the particles of 2,4,6-tris(2,4,6-tribromophenoxy)-1,3,5-triazine. The flame retardant composition is produced by reacting an alkali metal salt of 2,4,6-tribromophenol and cyanuric chloride in the presence of said water-insoluble polyvalent metal compound.

  • Publication number: 20080242778
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for obtaining organoclay from crude mineral clay, an organoclay obtainable by this method, a method for incorporating organoclay into a polymeric matrix to obtain composites, and some composites obtainable by this method. The method for obtaining organoclay includes reacting crude mineral clay with quaternary ammonium or phosphonium salt in a non-aqueous solvent to obtain ion-exchanged organoclay suspended in this solvent and a solid residue; and separating out the solid residue. The solvent is then separated, preferably by evaporation or filtration.
