By David Reed, UT Editor Indianapolis, Indiana-Great Lakes Chemical Corp. is increasing off-list prices for its Firemaster 2100 (decabromodiphenylethane) flame retardant by $0.20/kg worldwide with all shipments effective 1 July 2005, where contracts allow. The company stated that this action is necessary due to the continuing escalation of key raw material, energy and transportation costs. Firemaster 2100 is used to make flame retardant polymers, including thermoplastic polyurethanes, for applications in electronics, wire and cable, building and construction and transportation markets. The material is known for its versatility as a flame retardant across a wide range of applications, says Great Lakes.The firm claims to be the world’s leading producer of flame retardants with an extensive line of products including bromine-, phosphorus-, and antimony-based flame retardants and other synergists, as well as a full line of UV stabilisers, antioxidants, blends and optical monomers.
