RadiciGroup, historic Italian manufacturer of technical polymers, has decided to join the Pinfa association which brings together producers and users of flame retardants.
Pinfa - Phosphorus, Inorganic and Nitrogen Flame Retardants Association is one of the sector groups within the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC).
Pinfa represents the manufacturing industry and end users of non-halogenated, inorganic and nitrogenous phosphorus flame retardant materials (PIN FR).
Pinfa associates share the same vision of continuous improvement of the environmental profile and the health and safety of materials. Consequently, the members themselves seek a dialogue with the users of these products, in order to better identify their needs and find the appropriate technologies.
Online with the Group's sustainability strategy, RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers has recently joined Pinfa, the Association of manufacturers and users of self-extinguishing and halogen-free systems headed by Cefic ( European Chemical Industry Council).
«This is a further step in the path of attention to safety and the reduction of the environmental impact of our products - said Antonio Nerone, Electrical and Electronic Market expert of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers.
Joining Pinfa also allows us to interact with other industrial companies operating in our same sector, sharing the most recent discoveries and best practices and pooling skills and know-how in the field of self-extinguishing and halogen-free products ».
RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers, in fact, in its product range has materials of this type available, especially at the service of the Electrical and Electronics sector.
Joining Pinfa allows the Group and other member companies to share information that can facilitate the development of more environmentally friendly fireproof materials, in line with even the most stringent demands of the market.
With particular reference to the Electrical and Electronic sector, it is also necessary to take into account the respect of safety regarding the protection from the risk of fire and the preservation of the insulating properties of technopolymers even under conditions of extreme use, without all this necessarily generating an increase in the production costs of end customers.
