Bulab® Flamebloc (barium metaborate) is a fire retardant and smoke suppressant for use in plastics, paints, textiles, and rubber compounds. Since it is borate based, Bulab® Flamebloc will provide char formation and subsequent smoke suppression. This product is recommended for applications with stringent smoke requirements. It performs best when used as a synergist with halogen containing compounds. In many applications, Bulab® Flamebloc can be used as a partial or total replacement for antimony based compounds. Substitution of Bulab® Flamebloc for antimony trioxide in fire retardant products can provide the following benefits: raw material cost savings, reduced smoke, improved resistance to flameless combustion (afterglow suppression), and reduced toxicity of fumes emitted during combustion.
