Compo-SiL® flame retardant laminated silicone sheet can be roll-to-roll bonded with different fabrics by PUR and adhesives. It fulfills the UL 94-V0 flammability standard requirement and is one of the best choices for safety protection materials through innovative patented technology. Fire safety in many applications is highly required. It is mandatory to ensure the emergency systems should be working properly like alarms, emergency lighting, and automatic doors on escape doors. Flame retardant silicone rubber is the best solution for it.
When Compo-SiL® is exposed to fire, its material will become a hard ceramic which can withstand a very high temperature, and come together with electrically insulating property. Furthermore, it's eco-friendly to the environment after burning as it turns into non-toxic byproducts, such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and silica.
This wonderful material could be a very good choice for the safety gloves in PPE kits as it accounts for almost 23 % of total revenue in 2015, which is increasing exponentially. According to OSHA, the main reason for the above mentioned fact is that over 40% of the industrial fatalities and accidents are related to hand injuries, which can be decreased drastically with the help of these Compo-SiL® flame retardant gloves.
Compo-SiL® flame retardant sheets are particularly capable of exhibiting the excellent properties of silicone materials. Not only the silicone material has the flame retardant property, but silicone also can be made in various textures which enhance the palm grip and heat resistance. Moreover, due to the binding technology of Compo-SiL®, these flame retardant sheets can be bonded with other high-quality materials like Kevlar with adhesives.
