Melamine polyphosphate, also abbreviated as MPP, is a white crystalline powder with a phosphorous content of around 12–14 %and ad nitrogen content of around4–44%. . MPP is widely used as a flame retardant additive in plastics adhesives, coatings, gs, and polymers. MPP is halogen-n-free and is highly effective owing to the presence of nitrogen and phosphorous, resulting in efficient P-N-synergism. Melamine polyphosphate is generally applied as anas additive and reactive flame retardant for thermally resistant polyurethane products. Melamine polyphosphate is hydroxy alkylated with propylene and ethylene carbonates to achieve oligos the rolls with phosphorus and 1,3,5-triazine ring. A melamine phosphate flame retardant is manufactured using a relatively less energy-consuming, environment-friendly, ly, and simpler method compared to the traditional halogenated flame retardants.
Melamine polyphosphate interrupts and slows down the combustion process by chemical or physical activity in the liquid-solid, id, or gaseous phases. It interferes during decomposition, heating, flame spread, ad or ignition during the course of the fire. Melamine polyphosphate is primarily used in polyurethane foam nylon and polypropylene intumescent formulations in combination with ammonium polyphosphate. In some explicit formulations, derivatives of isocyanurates, triazines, guard insure, and cyanuric acid is used as reactive agents. Melamine polyphosphate is used as a flame retardant for upholstered furniture as well as in aircraft and railway seats. It is alsusedse in glass fibre reinforced polyamide 66 and polyamide 6. MPP shows a synergistic effect when applied with metal phosphinates such as aluminum and magnesium hydroxide.
Currently, the global melamine polyphosphate market is witnessing vivid opportunities owing to the rise in demand for flame retardant additives in a wide range of end-use industries such as textiles, home furnishings, aerospace, and automotive, among others. In addition, the increase in the use of melamine polyphosphate in the semiconductor and electronics industries, owing to its property of minimizing the flammability of combustible semiconductors, is another key aspect augmenting the growth of the global market. Furthermore, stringent government regulations prohibiting the use of toxic halogenated flame retardants, as well as raising awareness of fire safety, particularly among construction professionals, are some of the key factors driving the growth of the global melamine polyphosphate market. Also, an increase in the penetration of non-halogenated flame retardants in several applications, such as packaging and textiles, as well as proactive efforts from the end-users to avoid accidents caused by fire, are anticipated to supplement the overall market growth.
Melamine polyphosphate is used in a broad range of products, including smartphones, laptops, refrigerators, TV sets, printed circuit boards, and vacuum cleaners, among others. Moreover, increasing per capita disposable incomes in emerging economies are, in turn, supplementing the growth of the global electrical and electronics industry, which is projected to benefit the demand for melamine polyphosphate in the foreseeable future. The rapid technological transformation witnessed by the construction industry has involved the use of flame-retardant perforated materials such as structural and plastic insulation. This factor is projected to accelerate the demand for melamine polyphosphate to be used in flame-retarding construction-grade polyurethane foams. Rapid urbanization and increasing investments by the governments of several developing economies to provide affordable housing have benefited the global construction industry in the recent past. As a result, growth in the construction industry is expected to drive overall demand for melamine polyphosphate over the forecast period.
