2% weight loss 250°C
15% weight loss 300°C
30% weight loss 400°C

Typical Applications

NK is the ideal choice whenever a high degree of flame retardancy is desired, without the use of halogen, in paints, coatings, sealants, mastics and adhesives.

  • -High phosphorus content
  • -Single component intumescent system
  • -Limited water solubility
  • -Good thermal stability
  • -Small particle size
  • -Neutral pH in aqueous systems
