Hydromix has been especially developed to optimize flame properties and processability in a unique solution. Magnesium Hydroxide enhances the flame retardant properties while Magnesium Carbonate improves the processability of compounds.

 

Hydromix application in PVC and rubber compounds provides the following advantages:

 

• Increase in LOI (Limiting Oxygen Index)

• Reduction of smoke density and acidity

• Optimal processability and dispersibility, even at high filler loadings
