Flame Retardant Plastics from Marshall Plastic Film

3/15/19

Flame retardant plastic film works by inhibiting and delaying the spread of fire through suppression of chemical reactions within the film. At Marshall Plastic Film, we add a retardant to the polymers which increases resistance to ignition, reduces the spread of flames, suppresses smoke, and prevents the polymer in the film from dripping. The overall goal of flame retardant is to prevent or delay ignition and burning which gives people and animals, who are in proximity to the fire, time to escape safely. Besides allowing time for people and animals to flee, flame retardant plastic film also helps to limit property damage.
