    Abstract: A plastic film or laminates comprising films blended with flame retardants and corrosion inhibitors to provide simultaneous flame retardancy and corrosion protection for metallic particles when enclosed or packaged in envelopes comprising such films. The additives, while typically mutually antagonistic, are compatible when the flame component is a mixture of an antimony oxide such as antimony trioxide, antimony pentoxide, or zinc borate with a bromoaryl compound commonly bromoaryl having a bromine content ranging from between 36% to 75% and selected from group consisting of decabromodiphenyl oxide, poly (dibromostyrene) and bis-(tribromophenoxy ethane) and with the antimony oxide component in the flame retardant mixture being present in an amount such that the molar ratio of the antimony or zinc to bromine is such that for each mole of the antimony or zinc, approximately between about 2.5 and 3.

  • Patent number: 6228911
    Abstract: The invention relates to a composition comprising a) a styrene, &agr;-methylstyrene or p-methylstyrene homo- or copolymer; b) a bromine-containing flame retardant; c) a UV absorber; d) a sterically hindered amine and e) an epoxidized fatty acid. This invention also relates to the use of the light stabilizer mixture consisting of the components c), d) and e) for light-stabilizing a styrene, &agr;-methylstyrene or p-methylstyrene homo- or copolymer finished with a bromine-containing flame retardant as well as to a process for the light-stabilization thereof. Adding an epoxidized fatty acid to a UV absorber and a sterically hindered amine in styrene, &agr;-methylstyrene or p-methylstyrene homo- or copolymer finished with bromine-containing flame retardants results in an unexpected synergistic effect in the light stability. In particular, it is possible to markedly reduce the discoloration of the finished polymer which takes place in the course of irradiation.

  • Patent number: 5681875
    Abstract: A process is provided for making a flame composition. The process involves (a) mechanically dry blending (i) a tetrafluoroethylene polymer, preferably in powder form, and (ii) a first thermoplastic resin, preferably a vinyl aromatic resin to form a preblend composition and (b) admixing the preblend composition with a thermoplastic resin and a flame retardant to form the thermoplastic resin. The process provides enhanced levels of falling dart impact strength in articles molded from the thermoplastic composition.
