Decomposition Temperatures and Addition Guidelines for ATH and MDH Flame Retardants

1. Aluminum Hydroxide (ATH): ATH typically decomposes between approximately 200°C(392℉) and 300°C (572°F). Its powder form usually begins to decompose and release moisture at high temperatures (above approximately 200°C/392°F). During decomposition, releasing moisture helps absorb heat and prevent the spread of flames. The residue of the aluminum hydroxide then forms a protective oxide layer, known […]
