One of the group’s major goals is sustainability, in line with the new upcoming regulations of Chemical Strategy for Sustainability (CSS). This is why Gabriel-Chemie has introduced a new range of FR products for Polypropylene (PP). The range includes more sustainable formulations of classic halogenated solutions, but is also extended with the addition of new halogen-free solutions and even zero-halogen solutions. The products can be used in many applications ranging from electrical cable conduits to junction boxes, fuses and distribution boards for conventional and photovoltaic applications.

The internal tests have successfully confirmed the benefits of using zero-halogen masterbatches to enhance the recyclability of the end product, in accordance with the requirements of the Eco-Design regulation. This is a very crucial aspect as it has been estimated that over 80% of the environmentally-related impacts of products are determined during the product design phase.
The new zero-halogen masterbatches elevate the value of recycled material at the end of the product's lifecycle and enable the recycled material to maintain its flame retardant properties for a new generation of products.
