The Swiss specialty chemicals company Clariant as a world leader in environmentally compatible, non-halogenated flame retardants, is investing a double-digit million sum and doubling its production capacity for these products with the opening of a second plant at the Hürth-Knapsack site near Cologne, Germany. 
 
With this development the company will meet the demand for Exolit flame retardants, which has risen significantly since their market launch in 2004. 
 
At present Clariant is extending the Exolit product range with new products such as reactive flame retardant systems for electronic materials. In particular, innovative flame retardants are used in smartphones, laptops, and aircraft parts, and also in upholstered furniture, carpets, textiles, fixative foams, and construction materials.
