Brominated Flame Retardants protect what is essential


Today, with ever-more technological advancements and highly flammable materials like plastics surrounding us, Brominated Flame Retardants (BFRs) are needed more than ever to protect us from the risks of fire.

By inhibiting fire ignition or slowing down the spread of flames, BFRs increase the time for residents to evacuate and firefighters to intervene, avoiding injuries and traumatic experiences, and saving lives. By preventing fire losses, they also contribute to the protection of property and preservation of the environment.

Thanks to their different properties and the way they’re built into the plastics, BFRs constitute the most suitable and effective choice in a wide range of applications across various sectors, including electrical and electronic equipment such as televisions, computers, radios, fridges and washing machines, but also in furniture, automotive, transport and building and construction applications.
