Mistra Innovation, Gothenburg, Sweden, funds a new project for halogen-free flame-retardant polypropylene fibers by the Swedish company Paxymers AB. The green flame retardant was selected for financing in the tough competition with a total project value of 5 million SEK. The project aims to improve environmental and functional parameters of flame-retarded PP-fibers. The project will be conducted with five industrial partners and the University of Borås and Swerea/IVF, Sweden.

PP-fiber use has shown strong growth during the last years and it is projected to continue. Heat stabilization and self-extinguishing properties of PP as well as further functionalization is interesting for a number of applications.

The project will run over two years and the final goal is to have a compound on the market that is verified in the industrial scale and that meets tough environmental demands and flame retardant standards.

The industrial partners in the project cover most of the supply chain and are well diversified in their applications: Saab Baracuda (defence contractor), Borgstena group (fiber applications for transportation, office and home applications), FOV (specialty weaver), SKS (melt spinning of mono filaments), Klättermusen (premium outdoor apparel and innovator within green materials management).
