The market for coating additives with flame-retardant properties, especially in the US and Asia, is still dominated by halogen based chemistry. Nevertheless recent market related changes as well as new product safety related data urge the textile processing industries to reconsider their strategies. Therefore new non-halogenated alternatives have to be identified which can meet similar broad application ranges but also achieve comparable chemical efficiency, often being the exclusion factor for already existing halogen-free solutions during past years. A novel phosphorus chemistry initially developed for plastics now allows efficient flame-retardant action in back coatings with lower fiber selectivity than observed when using common established chemistries. In flame-retardant finishing on the other hand currently available products for durable effects on cotton and cotton rich blends are based since decades on non-halogen systems, but the established processes are linked to high formaldehyde emission levels. These have to be considered as problem for waste water streams but especially with respect to air emissions as worker safety is potentially at risk. A novel simple process technology is able to achieve high wash durability and materials with neutral hand accompanied by lower tensile strength loss and low impact on vat or selected reactive dyes regarding shade change.
