The KISUMA® 5 brand name represents environmentally safe magnesium hydroxide which is used as non-toxic flame retardants. The magnesium dihydroxides (MDH) produced by our proprietary and unique technology are highly pure white powders.
Does not generate toxic fumes or corrosive gas
Improves the arc and tracking resistance of polymers
Preferred across industries as a safer high-performing material
KISUMA® 5 products start to decompose endothermically at temperatures above 340°C, which results in the formation of magnesium oxide (MgO) and water (H2O). When this occurs, KISUMA® 5 provides flame retardancy in three steps.
1. The release of water results in cooling and decreased pyrolysis of the polymer.
2. The released water dilutes the fuel/oxygen ratio.
3. The MgO that is generated works as a protective layer that provides a smoke suppressant effect.
During this process, KISUMA® 5 does not generate poisonous or corrosive gas.
KISUMA® 5 is an excellent flame retardant and smoke suppressant that does not generate toxic fumes or corrosive gas. It has outstanding processability characteristics resulting from a special surface treatment and its extremely fine and consistent particle size benefits a range of functions.
KISUMA® 5 can be compounded to high concentrations in polymers and improves the Melt Flow Index (MFI) and flexural modulus of polypropylene. On top of this, KISUMA® 5 improves the arc and tracking resistance of polymers and works as an effective heat stabilizer for resins containing halogens.
