Australian specialty-chemicals developer Alexium International has launched Alexiflam NF for sale into Europe.
Alexiflam NF is a low-formaldehyde-content flame retardant for cotton fabrics. Earlier options for making cotton flame retardant offer such drawbacks as multiple stages of the process, specialty equipment involved, and high levels of formaldehyde. Alexium says its Alexiflam NF holds its flame retardancy and durable finish for more than 50 laundering cycles.
Alexium has pre-registered Alexiflam NF under REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction) parameters with the European Chemicals Agency allowing the sale of production-scale qualities into the European Union.
