By: Resinate Materials Group
PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Oct. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- Resinate Materials Group, Inc. (Resinate) has received a 6-month SBIR Phase One grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to fund process development related to lignin polyols for use as flame retardant (FR) polyols for rigid insulating foam applications.

The grant will allow Resinate to continue development of its patented lignin polyol process and composition technology (US 9,481,760; US 9,751,978; US 9,988,489) which provides improved intumescence and FR performance in rigid foams while at the same time utilizing sustainable content materials such as bio-renewable lignin and recycled polyethylene terephthalate.

"A number of halogenated flame-retardants have been banned in recent years due to a variety of health and environmental concerns, leaving a potential performance gap in the rigid foam market," said Rick Tabor, Resinate Chief Technology Officer.  "The development of greener, less hazardous materials that can serve as an effective replacement is therefore an important safety need for modern society."
