Synergies of Metal Molybdates and Metal Hydroxides in Fire Retardant Polyolefin Compounds

Background Information

  • J.M. Huber Corporation acquired the Kemgard® product line from The Sherwin Williams Company in August 2010.
  • Kemgard materials are smoke suppressants and char formers based on molybdenum and phosphorous chemistries.
  • Currently, the main application for Kemgard products is in PVC formulations (rigid, flexible, plastisols).
  • Huber is investigating Kemgard performance benefits in other polymer systems including polyolefin-based formulations.
  • Objective – review available data related to FR performance of metal molybdates as fire retardants/char formers in polyolefin based formulations.
