Lanxess Offers Flame
Retardants for Aircraft Cabins
Lanxess has introduced Disflamoil and Levagard flame retardants for use on wood veneers for aircraft cabins. These halogen-free transparent coatings systems comply with the aviation standard FAR 25.853. This specifies that after one minute of contact with flames, the material must self-extinguish within 15 seconds. The height of the flames must not exceed 15 cm. Levagard and Disflamoil ranges use impregnation and a transparent multi-layer coating system to ensure halogen-free flame retardance. In addition to aviation, this type of coating can be used in furniture and construction lumber applications. More info: Lanxess, 49 214 30-61684; Web: www.phosphorous-chemicals.com.
