Clariant maintains a strong patent position in phosphinate based flame retardants and continues to take legal action against infringers

Clariant maintains a strong patent position in phosphinate based flame retardants and continues to take legal action against infringers. (Photo: Shutterstock)Despite Clariant’s significant worldwide intellectual property (IP) position related to phosphinate flame retardant products, we are concerned that some polymer compounders and Original Equip-ment Manufacturers (OEMs) are considering local Chinese suppliers for diethylphosphinate alu-minium salt (DEPAL) based flame retardants. This class of halogen free flame retardants, often combined with nitrogen containing and inorganic synergists, have become workhorses in engi-neering thermoplastics, mainly glass filled polyamides and polyesters, but also epoxy resins. Clariant has been developing and advancing this technology for over two decades, so that our pa-tented Exolit® OP flame retardants have become the benchmark in quality and performance for phosphinate flame retardants in the market.
