Although it has been possible to produce PET films with flame retardance above the VTM-2 level, these films require the use of halogenated flame-retardant additives and flame-retardant coatings, leading to higher costs and increased environmental burdens.
Regional differences are considerable: While halogenated flame retardants are still dominating the Chinese market, ATH compounds are accounting for about half of total market volume in Western Europe and North America.
Because myeloid cells copiously express MPO and because halogenated DNA may induce both genetic and epigenetic changes that contribute to carcinogenesis, halogenative stress may account for benzene-induced bone marrow disorders and myeloid leukemia.
Its comparative tracking index (CTI) of 600V is said to be more than double that of a comparable halogenated FR nylon.
Berlin, March 31 (ANI): An international team of scientists has suggested that the largest known mass extinction in the history of the earth could have been triggered off by giant salt lakes, whose emissions of halogenated gases changed the atmospheric composition so dramatically that vegetation was irretrievably damaged.
Published earlier this year by the environmental group, "Killer Couches: Protecting Infants & Children from Toxic Exposure" reports that a high percentage of household furniture in California contain halogenated fire retardants which are toxic to humans and animals.
For the most part, halogenated compounds are found in PCBs, solder masks, mold compounds, connectors, cable insulation and wiring conduit.
The research demonstrates that so-called halogenated organic compounds are also produced naturally and "were bioaccumulating in marine mammals--just as PCBs do now--before Monsanto, Dupont, and 3M were making halogenated organic compounds for industrial use," said Emma Teuten and Chris Reddy.
Halogenated flame-retardants (FRs) such as organic brominated compounds are often used to improve flame retarding properties of polymers, but they usually increase both smoke and carbon monoxide yield rates because of less efficient combustion [3].
That raised alarms because the compounds, as complex halogenated chemicals, structurally resemble the pesticide DDT and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which were once used in flame retardants.
The flame retardants are based in inorganic materials, which avoid the environmental impact and toxicity concerns associated with halogenated flame retardants.
