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 bitumen roofing membranes.

EcoPiren® can be applied in APP and SBS modified bitumen roofing membranes optimizing the cost of the membrane, increasing productivity and reaching
the highest grades of fireproof classification.

EcoPiren
advantages

High rate of polymer dissolution
in bitumen
Promotes high productivity and good processability due to its high decomposition temperature
(up to 330° C)
Absorbs more energy during the decomposition process than ATH, prevents burning droplets formation
Effective flame retardant/smoke suppressant allows to produce BroofT3 fireproof grade
Halogen free, non-corrosive
and safe to handle
Naturally occurring and environmentally-friendly product
