BX FR OP1230
BX FR OP1230 is a halogen-free flame retardant based on organic phosphinates, white powder, called Aluminum Diethyl Phosphinate.This product is not hygroscopic and is
insoluble in water and common organic solvents like acetone, dichloromethane, MEK, toluene, and so on
BX FR OP1230 can even be applied in high-temperature polyamides because of its high-temperature stability. It is suitable for both glass fiber-reinforced and unreinforced grades. The flame retardant polyamide compounds exhibit very good physical and electrical properties.

Suitable for both glass fiber reinforced and unreinforced grades
The flame retardant polyamide compounds exhibit very good physical and excellent electrical properties
Suitable for lead-free soldering
Non-halogenated flame retardant with favorable environmental and health profile
Before incorporating BX FR OP1230, it is important to dry the polymer as usual. Predrying of BX FR OP1230 is not necessary. However, pre-drying (e. g. 4h at 120 °C) is recommended, if even very low moisture contents must be avoided.
The mixing and processing methods customary in the powder processing of polymers can be used with BX FR OP1230.
The optimum conditions for incorporating should be determined in each individual case. Care must be taken to ensure homogeneous dispersion of all components. The temperature of the polymer melt should not exceed 350 °C
25 kg /bag, using paper bags with PE inner. The product should be stored in a dry place at room temperature.
