INFINGENT, Malmo, Skane, SE
INFINGENT is one of the world's leading manufacturers of silica-based nanoparticles and nanocomposites for fire resistant applications. Headquartered at Medeon Science Park, Sweden, we are pioneers in the use of nanotechnology to create unique, innovative and cost-effective products.The flame-retardant nanoparticles of Infingent Silica have been developed using state-of-the-art proprietary technologies, to hinder (or even fully prevent) combustion no matter which portion of the fire cycle it is in - be it heating, ignition, spread or decomposition. Our nanostructured silica is a non-halogenated product, which is highly effective because of the natural self-insulating properties of amorphous silica - properties which it retains even in its nano-sized form. Unlike current halogenated flame-retardants, Infingent silica offers no toxic by-products and extremely stable under extreme conditions. The flame-retardant effect of Infingent Silica is active at below 5wt%, ensures high compatibility and less processing issues. INFINGENT silica being the first commercial flame-retardant chemical of its type has a great potential for a majority of flame retardant markets but primary supplying to wires and cables industry.
