Inorganic flame retardants are a type of fire protective agent widely used in various materials. Common inorganic flame retardants include hydroxides, oxides, and silicate flame retardants. Their main function is to improve the fire resistance of the material by inhibiting the spread of flames and the combustion process. Inorganic flame retardants have the advantages of being non-toxic, odorless, and non-polluting, so they have been widely used in construction, textiles, plastics, rubber, and other fields.

Common inorganic flame retardants mainly include hydroxide flame retardants, oxide flame retardants, silicate flame retardants, etc. Hydroxide flame retardants, such as aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, etc., have good flame retardant effects and smoke suppression properties and do not produce toxic gases. Therefore, they are widely used in construction, cables and other fields. Oxide flame retardants, such as alumina, magnesium oxide, etc., have high-temperature stability and good flame retardant properties and are often used in the preparation of high-temperature materials. Silicate flame retardants, such as sodium silicate, potassium silicate, etc., have good fire resistance and stability and are widely used in the preparation of ceramics, glass and other materials.


The application of inorganic flame retardants is not limited to single materials but can also be used in conjunction with other flame retardants, additives, etc., to achieve better flame retardant effects. For example, the combination of inorganic flame retardants and organic flame retardants can produce a synergistic effect and improve flame retardant properties. In addition, inorganic flame retardants can also be used in conjunction with flame retardant additives such as plasticizers and coupling agents to improve the processing performance and stability of the flame retardant.

However, inorganic flame retardants also have some limitations. First, the addition of large amounts of inorganic flame retardants may have a negative impact on the physical and mechanical properties of the material. Secondly, inorganic flame retardants may react with other components in the material at high temperatures, resulting in a decrease in material performance. Therefore, in practical applications, it is necessary to select appropriate inorganic flame retardants based on specific application scenarios and needs and carry out reasonable formula design and process control.


As a flame retardant, potassium silicate has excellent flame-retardant properties.

It inhibits the spread of flames during combustion and reduces the generation of smoke and harmful gases. At high temperatures, potassium silicate can quickly form a dense molten layer that cuts off the oxygen supply, effectively preventing the spread of fire. This property makes potassium silicate widely used in building materials, electronic and electrical equipment, aerospace and other fields.

In the field of building materials, potassium silicate can be used as a raw material for the preparation of flame-retardant coatings, insulation materials, flame-retardant glass, and other products. It not only provides effective fire protection but also slows down the spread of fire and strives for more escapes for people, improving the overall safety of the building. At the same time, potassium silicate can also be used as an important raw material for building materials and used in the production of ceramics and cement products.


Due to its high temperature resistance and flame retardant properties, potassium silicate can resist fire attacks and protect the safety of aerospace vehicles. In the field of electronic and electrical equipment, potassium silicate, as an excellent heat dissipation material, can effectively improve the heat dissipation performance of the equipment, reduce the temperature, and protect the normal operation of electronic components.

In addition, potassium silicate also has the advantages of good mechanical strength, high bonding force, small void ratio, high impermeability and water resistance, and good acid resistance. It is used in alkaline media, fluorine-containing media, neutral salt solutions and advanced Corrosion resistance is also found in fatty acids. These properties make potassium silicate also play an important role in the manufacturing process of welding rods, welding electrodes, vat dyes, etc.
