When fire safety is a priority, the right flame retardant technology can make all the difference in product safety. When fires do start, they slow down the spread and increase valuable escape time. Our flame retardant portfolio is suitable for different substrates in a variety of industries, tailored to meet precise product requirements and fireproof norms. We develop performance coatings, additives and polymer dispersions that ensure flame-retardant environments and settings. 

Reduce fire hazard risk, without compromise on quality

Flame retardant chemistry ensures end products that, in all their style and substance, slow the rate of fire and decrease the generation of burn and smoke. Stahl’s flame retardant solutions are applicable to a variety of substrates, like leather, technical textiles, high-performance fabrics or nonwovens and synthetics. They are used as is or as a component in coating formulation. Achieving precise performance standards in accordance with strict fire safety regulations without affecting other properties is a major challenge. That’s why we work side-by-side with you as customer, to provide you with the technology that meets your needs in performance, legislative compliance and environmental standards. 

Versatile in application, reliable in safety

Stahl’s flame retardants are used in the mobility, interior design, outdoor applications, safety equipment and many other industries. Stahl technology and solutions can be found throughout a variety of construction applications. They give flame-retardant properties to flooring, tents and awnings at outdoor festivals, but that also give a fire-safe coating to less visible elements you might not think about, like construction insulation material, heat shields, roofing and other construction material, be it non-woven, foam or membrane: in the invisible background they can all play their flame-retardant part with the right Stahl coating.

Key benefits of Stahl Flame Retardants

Our full life cycle of flame-retardant solutions has been evaluated from initial production through recycling at the end of consumer product life. Stahl’s flame-retardant solutions have been deemed safe for continued use, making them the durable and reliable choice. They are designed using the latest technologies, testing and prototyping equipment in order to guarantee the best and most up-to-date application possible for end products. A large portion of our portfolio contains water-based technologies. This enables the same safety standards, with a smaller ecological footprint.

FR portfolio product overview

Stahl offers a broad range of flame-retardant building blocks, varying from water-based performance coatings, to polymer dispersions, binders and additives. Below you find a number of our available technologies.

Eagleban™ FRA 4311
A highly effective, durable flame retardant for all types of fibres.  Intumescent flame retardant which imparts flame retardancy by forming a char rather than affecting the melt properties of the substrate. Excellent choice for barrier type uses.
Eagleban™ FRA-4007

Aqueous dispersion of an ammonium polyphosphate and nitrogen. Recommended for applications where halogenated flame retardants and antimony oxide cannot be used. Effective on different blends of  fibers where water resistance is important.

Eagleban™ FRA-4089
Aqueous dispersion of a melamine pigment. To be used as a synergist for phosphorous based flame retardants.  Effective on cellulosic fabrics.
Eagleban™ FRA-7070


A phosphonate ester emulsion. Recommended for use as a flame retardant for polyester fabrics where wash resistance is required. This emulsion has no effect on the handle of the fabric.
Eagleban™ FRA-7111


Water soluble, non durable, polyphosphoric acid, recommended for use as a flame retardant for polyester and polyester/cellulosic blends. To be applied by padding. Not to be used in applications that require water soak resistance. Low corrosion sensitivity.
Eagleban™ FRA-9320
A durable, non-fogging and highly effective liquid fire retardant additive. Designed for use in automotive flame retardant coatings.  Addition to solventborn- or high solid PU systems is a good starting point for fire retardant formulations.
Eagleban™ FRA-9450


Liquid flame retardant for non-waterborne systems. The flame retardant contains proprietary halogens and phosphorous. It has low effect on physical properties of the used polymer, low discoloration effect and very good hydrolytic stability.
Eagleban™ FRA-9457

Phosphate/Phosphonate ester

Effective, liquid, halogen free flame retardant suitable for a.o. flexible polyurethane foams. Its high molecular weight is advantage for automotive applications because its low fogging and low VOC emissions.
Eagleban™ FRA-9460
A non-fogging fire retardant additive based on phosphorous and a.o. designed for automotive flame retardant coatings. Best as addition to flame retardant formulations that already contain a primary flame retardant additive (prevention of burning droplets).
Eagleban™ FRA-9551
Hydroxy functional oligomeric phosphate/phosphonate ester. Suitable for cellulosic textiles. Can be made durable/semi-durable to laundering when crosslinked.
Eagleban™ FRA-8072

Aqueous dispersion of a proprietary halogen with antimony pentoxide as synergist.  Can be used in environmentally sensitive end uses as there are no restrictions on the used halogens. Suitable for automotive applications.

agleban™ FRA-8526


Highly effective aquous dispersion of an encapsulated decabromodiphenyl ethane with antimony trioxide.
Eagleban™ FRA-9118
Mg/Zn derivates
Blend of minerals recommended for use as synergist in halogenated flame-retardant systems, like PVC plastisols. Environmental friendly replacement of antimony trioxide.
Eagleban™ FRA-4133
Mg/Zn derivates
Aquous dispersion of a blend of minerals, recommended for use as synergist in halogenated flame-retardant systems, Designed as a replacement for antimony trioxide.
Eagleban™ FRC 0387


Ready for use flame retardant compound for backcoating of synthetic and synthetic/cellulosic fabrics. Especially designed to meet BS 5852-2.
Eagleban™ FRC-9500
Ready for use flame retardant compound for back coating of synthetic/cellulosic fabrics, providing excellent intumescent and heat shielding properties.
Eagleban™ BF-50
Intumescent + graphite
Same as Eagleban™ FRC-9500 with additional graphite.
Eagleban™ FRC-5126
Ready for use flame retardant compound for (back) coating of polypropylene, polyamide fabrics or blends. ATO free. Nitrogen as synergist.
Permutex® RU 13-597
Aliphatic polyester/polycarbonate based inherently flame retardant PUR dispersion for impregnation of textiles. Hard handle.
Permutex® RU-43-127
Aliphatic polyester/polycarbonate based inherently flame retardant PUR dispersion for impregnation of textiles. Medium hard handle.
