The upstream feed was a blend of polymer, alumina trihydrate
(ATH), and additives fed into barrel section 2.
Three MoldX optimized alumina trihydrate
(ATH) grades have been introduced.
However, brominated compounds will continue to lead the market in total value and alumina trihydrate
(ATH) will remain the largest-volume flame retardant through 2011--comprising 45% of demand and growing in line with the market as a whole.
