REINACH – Global speciality chemicals business Archroma has announced that its halogen-free flame retardant powder coating additive, Pekoflam HFC, has been certified by the Oeko-Tex Association to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Pekoflam HFC is an organic phosphorous/nitrogen compound which Archroma claims provides excellent performance on synthetic materials, including polyamide fibres and blends, with possible applications including military and protective wear, transportation interiors, and high-quality upholstery. Archroma has also suggested that the chemistry in Pekoflam demonstrates higher efficiency compared to commonly used nitrogen and phosphorous based chemicals, with the product also applicable in water-based systems as well as in the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 compliant 'green' solvent based coating systems.
