Meeting European Flame-Retardant Specifications

EN 13501-1 B-S1, d0 which is the most demanding of the commercial flame retardant standards to pass for combustible materials due to the very low-flame-spread and very low smoke density (non-toxic non-bio-accumulative).

"VersaCHAR extrusion coated, co-extruded onto polyolefin pipes and over molded as a protective layer has been shown to impart a protective char layer (intumescence) that prevents the underlying substrate from combusting."

// Plastic Technology Magazine

"PAL…VersaCHAR compound can be produced as a flexible film or sheet and molded to shape or over-molded to most materials, including metal for corrosion resistance  As a polymeric compound it can be cast or calendered and typical durometers from 80-99A for flexible-to-high rigid formats are practical."

// Textile World Magazine
Reinforced Plastics

"The compound has passed ASTM E84 (Class A/1), which includes less than 2.3% of allowable smoke generation limits and produces no flaming drips. It can also match the requirements of UL 94 V-0, the company said. The polyolefin compound has less than 1.0 specific gravity and 100% non-toxic, including no heavy metals, halogens or VOC’s."

What is PAL...VersaCHAR?

PAL...VersaCHAR is a line of non-halogen, intumescent flame-retardant polyolefin compounds that includes compounds that makes it possible to achieve a range of flexible and rigid films of various hardness that can be formed via extrusion coating, cast film extrusion and can also achieve soft touch over moldings or co-extrusions. This material can custom-tailored to individual needs.

Is PAL...VersaCHAR a sustainable product?

The new Sustainable Clean FR technology does not burn whatsoever. Direct flame as high as 1,950C  (highest tested to date) with no flaming drips, does not cause the Clean FR to burn or generate heavy toxic smoke. It only surface chars starving the flames as a fuel source and reduced heat transfer to any sub-layer material. Thus, providing potential extra time to escape.

Exactly how toxic is PAL...VersaCHAR?

To meet the high-levels of flame-retardant performance/low smoke and non-toxic off gassing requirements airplanes require. Manufacturers and integrators are often forced to use advanced engineering polymers that can cost up to $40 per pound or more.

What industries does PAL...VersaCHAR serve?

Partial list of Ideas for Clean FR Everyday End-Uses:

  • Adhesives for Thermal Bonding
  • Aerospace/Fixed Wing and Rotor
  • Aircraft, Boats/Ships (Civilian and Military)
  • Battery Containment Systems for EV's
  • Building Interiors and Construction
  • Bus, Rail and Other Public Transportation
  • Cars, Boats, Currency, International Shipping
  • Conduit and Pipe Co-Extruded Exteriors
  • Military Vehicle Interiors, Camouflage
  • Oil & Gas Platform, piping
  • Plastic for Pallets
  • Protective Clothing, Oil Field, Electrical
  • Recreation Vehicles Interiors and Exteriors
  • Shelters, Tents, Arenas and Domes
  • Tanks, Silos and Storage

There are many applications where sustainable Clean FR technology can be used for a  life-saving advantage.  Safety regulators and associations serving commercial tenants no longer have to wait for products to outperform current materials, as it available now at a reasonable cost.  Consider having a conversation with your insurance provider about possible savings for your customers as well.
