Hetron™ and Modar™ fire-retardant resin

When it’s your reputation on the line, you can rely on ours. With more than 50 years of successful application experience, Ashland continues to raise the bar for fire-retardant resins. 

Thermosetting fire-retardant Modar resins are based on non-halogenated, modified acrylic polymer chemistry, while Hetron fire-

retardant resins are based on halogenated polyester or epoxy vinyl ester chemistry. 

Both accept the addition of alumina trihydrate or ground marble to improve the fire retardance, cosmetic properties or the economics of finished composites.
