Ignition-resistant polymer coating

Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) has introduced Reddex, a non-toxic, fire-resistant composite material technology that offers ignition resistance and fire protection in one system.

Industrial Technology Research Institute’s (Hsinchu, Taiwan) Reddex, a non-toxic, fire-resistant material, offers ignition resistance and fire protection in one system. This inorganic polymer can be applied as a paint and chars and burns, eventually converting into a bound inorganic porous structure with low thermal conductivity, thereby insulating the structure. The formulation contains no halogen, sulfur or phosphor components. The material will be tested in the U.S. within one year and ITRI expects it to be globally commercialized within three years
