Flame repelent furniture manufactured from recycled materialsFlame repelent furniture manufactured from recycled materials

Fires in urban zones and public transportation are common because flammable material is used in its manufacture; in order to reduce this problematic, the Center for Applied Innovation and Competitive Technologies (CIATEC) has obtained materials from recycled polyolefins (thermoplastics) that have flame retardant properties, which can be employed in everyday items as furniture or beams.

Polyolefins are found in a great part of the residue from the plastics industry; with this materials CIATEC proposes to elaborate roof beams or hoses that conduct electric wiring. The advantage is that this material have fireproof properties.

The research titled «Process for obtaining recycled materials with flame retardant properties» was carried out by Guadalupe Sánchez Olivares from CIATEC in central Mexico. The project is finished and ready for its technological transference.

«We have given additional value to several waste object that come from the plastics industry and pollute the environment: the fireproof property gives them different uses and applications so it can be used as a safe material. We are going to contribute in the discharge of environmental pollutants on a national level; the point of the project is to give added value to residue thrown in the garbage and open up a market for it».
