Brominated flame retardants likewise are capable of protecting electronics against fire. They are also used in the construction industry in building insulation. In this sector, flame retardance requirements are on the rise particularly due to the trend toward energy-efficient construction.
LANXESS recently acquired the U.S.-based chemicals company Chemtura. Chemtura’s former business with brominated flame retardant additives, bromine and other bromine derivatives was merged with LANXESS’s existing phosphorus-based flame retardants business. Top brands include the Firemaster® products, as well as the sustainable flame retardants in the Emerald InnovationTM line.
