Flame Retardant Grade: FR70R

Flame retardant silicone rubber applications

TECHNICAL DATA - April 2016

Flame retardant silicone rubber is available in two grades from Advanced Materials, Villeater FR70R, which is detailed below, and FR70R.

FR70R is a flame retardant grade of silicone rubber.

Flame retardant silicone rubber is designed for use in the production of items with the following specifications:

Fire resistance

  • Flame resistance-vertical combustion: classification UL 94 VO, 2mm
  • Limit oxygen index (norm NF T 51071, 1985),%, approx. : 39
  • Incandescent wire (norm NF C 520455):class I2,( class I2= limit oxygen index ³ 32%, without flaming of the elastomer during and after application of the incandescent wire at 850° C

Opacity and toxicity of fumes

  • Smoke opacity to AFNOR norm NF X 10702 Smoke Index : S.I. approx. . : 4
  • Smoke toxicity to AFNOR norm NF X 70100 Conventional Toxicity Index : CIT. Approx. : 2.3
  • The FO class can be obtained from the results of these tests
