A company needs non-halogenated polymeric mix additives that provide non-smoke fire retardance for wiring jackets and cables. The additive must have low enough loadings so that product performance and flexibility are maintained. Wires and cables must meet a variety of requirements, some imposed by regulatory or testing authorities, and some imposed by market expectations. The additives must produce consistent fire retardance over time and manufacturing runs. The temperature-resistant solution should also be compatible with high-speed production lines.
