|Paxymer protects people|
In 2002 MSB, the Swedish civil contingencies agency, approached Dr Swaraj Paul with a problem: Fire fighters and rescue workers had vast problems in dealing with burning plastic materials, these materials emitted toxic smoke, reignited other materials and caused material damage through soot. The plastic industry told them that it could not be solved without using toxic flame-retardants. Dr Paul’s conclusion was that solving these problems was possible in a toxic-free way. That solution became the patented PaxymerTM system.
Instead of trying to fulfil the current standards Dr Paul decided that he comprehensively wanted to solve the problems of fire. Combining the difficulties communicated by MSB and his extensive product development experience resulted in PaxymerTM: increased safety for the end user and a system that is usable for the manufacturers.
Active in all parts of the burning process
Does not smoke
Does not drop or soot
PaxymerTM is a system designed to minimize the risk exposure according to the risk assessment methodology. It is able to fulfil the standard flammability tests (such as UL94-V0, GWFI 960°, EN-50085 etc.) and increase safety through the favourable burning process and non-toxic composition.
