EcoPiren® is a natural magnesium hydroxide obtained by separation and milling of brucite mineral; it is used as an effective flame retardant and smoke suppressant  in PVC cable compounds.

EcoPiren® can be applied in compounds of cable sheathing, bedding or insulation as a single flame retardant or in a mixture with antimony trioxide and zinc borate. Application of EcoPiren® optimizes the cost of compound and improves the CPR category of the cable.
