Tech Talk: Flame retardancy—from concept to formulation

During this 30-minute Talk, learn how DSM builds a mechanistic understanding about how flame retardancy works in polymer composites, and how these insights are applied to develop new materials and to overcome the challenges customers face in the market.

Flame retardancy—from concept to formulation

Materials used for many E&E applications, including connectors and circuit breakers, need to meet strict requirements, including flame retardancy. Hans Hoekstra, Research and Technical Manager at DSM Engineering Materials, discusses the basics of flame retardancy in composites, and the five tools that that Engineering Materials uses to research and develop such material solutions.
