German specialty chemicals company LANXESS a global player in the chemical industry and one of the largest flame-retardant producers, and FRX Innovations, a leading global developer and manufacturer of environmentally sustainable polymeric flame-retardant additives, have announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding covering:

* Evaluation of a contract manufacturing, by LANXESS, of a family of FRX patented NOFIA products

* Potential production by LANXESS, of an FRX patented raw material necessary for the production of NOFIA flame retardants

* Exploration of potential marketing by LANXESS of NOFIA flame retardants in specific sectors and/or geographies. 

“Being a unique polymeric, sustainable flame-retardant solution, the NOFIA® range fits perfectly with LANXESS’ existing phosphorus flame retardant portfolio and long-term strategy of sustainable flame-retardant solutions,” said Karsten Job, Managing Director of LANXESS’ Polymer Additives business unit. “We believe that FRX’s NOFIA® technology will capture important market share in this market.” 

“This relationship with LANXESS is a definitive step in the growth of our NOFIA® business,” said Marc Lebel, CEO of FRX Innovations. “As a direct consequence of recently passed legislation, market dynamics have changed significantly, causing NOFIA® products to be pulled into large new application areas. LANXESS operates one of the world’s premiere Flame-Retardant Additives businesses and we believe that a strategic partnership with LANXESS can be pivotal to capturing the considerable growth opportunities ahead for us both.” 

Lebel continued, “The relationship we are discussing fits well with FRX’s mission to be a leader in the environmentally sustainable revolution now driving the flame-retardant industry.”
