Anti-flammable Compounds and Adhesive Materials

LEAD INVENTOR:
Todd S. Emrick, Ph.D.
 
PRODUCT OPPORTUNITIES

  • Novel compounds that impart flame retardancy
  • Halogen-free anti-flammable adhesive materials

 
ADVANTAGES

  • Enables the preparation of halogen-free anti-flammable adhesive materials with exceptionally low hear release properties and high char residues
  • Affords a broad range of adhesive formulations tailorable for specific end-use applications

 
TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION
This invention provides new chemical compositions and methods for the preparation of adhesive materials that have low flammability. The low flammability is due to newly invented organic/polymeric components used in the adhesive formulation, rather than through the addition of a conventional anti-flammable additives such as halogenated organic molecules or phosphorous-containing structures.
ABOUT THE LEAD INVENTOR
