What is Paxymer?

Green flame retardant for plastics

THE PROBLEM

Some of the most problematic plastic materials to human health and the environment are halogenated flame retardants. When working with flame retardants the challenge is to provide sufficient fire safety without deteriorating the material properties.

THE INNOVATION

Paxymer is developed for polyolefin plastics-the most environmentally favorable plastics available in commercial scale according to Greenpeace. The Paxymer system enables elimination of traditional flame retardants without compromising product performance or safety.

THE VISION

The health and environmental impact from the use of toxic chemicals is currently calculated in trillions. Paxymer aims to put a stop to this. The system the company has developed boosts performance of flame retardant materials, the end result are products that do not compromise with the safety of people and products.
