Floreon A High Performance Alternative To Flame Retardant ABS With NO COMPROMISES.

Floreon Therma Tech is a HALOGEN FREE alternative to Flame Retarded ABS. Our unique product is a PLA based compound intended for durable applications requiring flame retardancy. This grade is a world first and contains a flame retardant, impact modifier & nucleating agent. The material is based on PLA and is designed as a drop in replacement for ABS in injection moulding, extrusion and 3D printing. Drying of the material is recommended to ensure melt stability and limit degradation of the material during processing.

Our unique halogen free bioplastic, derived from plants, is suitable for chemical and mechanical recycling and has up to seven times lower carbon footprint than oil-based plastic, making it a safe and sustainable option for electrical goods, toys and automotive use with NO LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.

Why Was Floreon Therma-Tech Developed?

 

Flame retardant ABS is not recycled today due to concerns about halogen contamination. As the material of choice for the $29.6 billion electronics and electricals industry, this translates to a vast volume of plastic heading to landfills instead of a recycling stream, there was a need for a more sustainable alternative that maintains all the performance of oil based ABS so Floreon developed Therma Tech as a sustainable alternative.

Shaun Chatterton, CEO of Floreon explains: “Our in-house consumer study found that 92% of UK adults are concerned about how much plastic is in their home appliances, so the development of our flame retardant PLA is a pivotal point for Floreon.”

 

Flame Retardant Floreon Grade Is Certified To UL99V2.

 

Floreon is a world leader in bioplastic development and our unique patented Therma Tech grade made from PLA is suitable for durable applications and is certified as a flame retardant grade to UL94V2 standards.

 

With similar properties to ABS Floreon Therma Tech is ideal for injection moulding, electronic toys, consumer electronics and home furnishings with the added benefit of a low carbon footprint and added end of life options.

“Not many bioplastic materials can offer the same high-performance level, options to recycle and a lower carbon footprint in direct comparison to flame retardant ABS plastics, and we are incredibly proud to be one of the first.” 
Shaun Chatterton CEO | Founder

Floreon Therma Tech Is The HALOGEN FREE Alternative To Flame Retarded ABS That Can Be RECYCLED.

Floreon Therma Tech is developed for applications requiring a sustainable alternative to oil based plastic requiring fire resistance. Floreon’s base material (PLA) is ideally suited to chemical recycling and our tests in lab conditions prove this.
 
In pilot plant /kilo lab trials with the Biorenewables Development Centre, Floreon were able to recover 100% of the lactic acid feedstock in a simple and fast reaction, removing ALL flame retardant and fillers by simple filtration. The pictures below show this testing procedure.
 
This feedstock can then be used to regenerate virgin polymer with no downcycling.

Benchmarking Floreon Product Against ABS.

Floreon’s durable grade called Dura Tech, and our flame retarded grade called Therma Tech were tested alongside a high performance ABS and a flame retarded ABS grade to provide a benchmark. Results showed that Floreon is able to match the notched impact strength of ABS and Floreon passed all necessary drop testing in moulded products.
