Halogenated Flame Retardants & Related Compounds

There are many challenges associated with the chemistry, toxicology and environmental analysis of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) as well as other chlorinated and nonhalogenated compounds used solely as flame retardants (FRs), or in mixtures with BFRs.

This area of research is continuing to grow as additional FRs are being found in the environment and certain BFRs are being phased out and replaced with new compounds. The scientists at Wellington monitor the literature for reports of these newly detected contaminants and new commercial flame retardants so that we can provide the necessary reference standards.

In addition, we offer a BFR calibration set as well as many individual standards of other flame retardants and compounds related to BFRs that are created through metabolism, combustion, or other processes. Our HFR product line currently includes standards for:

  • Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs)
  • Hexabromocyclododecanes (HBCDs)
  • Brominated Biphenyls (PBBs)
  • Brominated Dibenzofurans (PBDFs)
  • Bromophenols (BRPs)
  • Aryl Phosphates
  • …and more

These solutions can be found on pages 99 – 139 of our current catalogue.
