Flame retardant can be said is a legal product, the introduction of relevant laws and regulations will make all the use of flame retardants has. As long as these Regulations are observed and effective precautions are taken, the flame retardants will not have a negative effect on the environment. At the same time, a comprehensive research and evaluation of the newly developed flame retardant is carried out in order to ensure the safety of its production and use.
China's latest GB20826 "fire retardant products and components of public places requirements and signs". Clear public places with flame retardant products and components, the definition and classification of combustion, performance requirements and marking, the provisions of the building products, public places the use of paving materials, wire and cable, socket, switch, lamps, household appliances and other plastic products and the use of shell seat, sofa, mattress in the insulation layer and the combustion performance of foam the proposed level of flame retardant standards required. The management of flame-retardant products labeling has been implemented in March 1, 2007. It is made according to the People's Republic of China Fire Law and the People's Republic of China quality act. There are thirteen contents. The flame retardant product is a combination of products made of flame retardant materials and various products, including flame-retardant building products, flame retardant fabric, flame retardant plastic / rubber, flame retardant foam, flame retardant furniture and components, and flame-retardant wire and cable. Flame retardant products marking means that the combustion performance of the flame retardant products and components has been inspected according to the relevant regulations. It was implemented in May 1, 2007.
In addition, the GB8624-1997 of People's Republic of China was replaced by GB8624-2006 in the classification of the combustion performance of building materials and products.
With the gradual improvement of all kinds of laws and regulations in China, the prospect of flame-retardant industry is promising. This indicates that the improvement of people's life requires a safer and more reliable environment, and it is also a sign of a harmonious society. The further development of the flame retardant industry and the production of flame retardants is to be expected.
The United Nations Convention on persistent organic pollutants in Stockholm voted unanimously to pass a ban: prohibiting the use of six bromo ring twelve alkane (HBCD) in the world, a fire retardant commonly used in the field of insulation, textile and electronics.
Brominated flame retardants are widely used in industry because they can effectively prevent the ignition of plastic products and textiles. It is important to note that brominated flame retardants are easily decomposed at 160 C at high temperatures, and can exist in the environment for a long time and accumulate in biological tissues. When the human body is exposed to the environment, or when it is used to gather brominated flame retardants, it will also gather in the human body and pose a threat to the health of the human body.
In this regard, the inspection and Quarantine Department reminded the relevant enterprises: one is to firmly eliminate the use of six bromo ring twelve alkanes and other environmental and biological harmful substances. The two is to establish self-control self-control system, analyze the key control points and risk points in production, focus attention and test, and strengthen the detection of the raw materials. Especially for the first product, the enterprises with weak technology can find the technical support of the inspection and quarantine department or the large inspection organization. The three is to strengthen the cooperation with the scientific research institute, actively develop the alternative material for environmental protection, safety and health, and enhance the core competitiveness of the products.
