On December 31, 2015 Color Center concluded the technical developments in the frame of ECO-DESIGNED FLAME RETARDANTS FOR THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY(ECO-FR) project. This project has enabled the creation of a range of ECO-designed flame retardants (halogen-free, formaldehyde-free and antimony-free) with an improved toxicological profile in comparison with the existing traditional solutions in the market. This research project has been approved and financed by the European Economic Area Agreement (EEA: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) in cooperation with CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial) as operator in Spain. ECO-FR project took off last July 2014 , currently some of the developments are under industrial scale and sales promotion (link to leaflet ECO-FR). Extensive applied research carried out under this EEA-Grants project together with the large number of (nano)materials tested allow us to offer customized fireproofing solutions, technically feasible and environmentally friendly.
